A massive Qatar aluminium plant was to be built in Mesaieed Industrial City. The Qatar aluminium plant, named Qatalum, would utilize fresh seawater for cooling purposes which meant that corrosion resistant fluid control equipment was called for. Qatar is mostly surrounded by water except for Saudi Arabia its only land boarder. Qatalum required a company with a minimum of 20 years of demonstrable experience designing, engineering, fabricating and directing the installation of large scale corrosion resistant fluid control equipment. This is where Plasti-Fab was able to come to the rescue.

This industrial city is located in a natural bay on the southern coast of the Qatar Eastern Peninsula, approximately 40 kilometers south of the capital, Doha.
