Currently, Borouge is tripling the annual production capacity of its petrochemical complex in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, to 2 million tonnes of polyethylene and polypropylene, with the start-up planned for the middle of the year.

Tradition and expansion in Austria
Borealis is one of the biggest companies in Austria and has its global headquarters in Vienna. In Schwechat, Borealis operates one of the most modern polyolefins production plants in Europe with an annual production capacity of around 1 million tonnes. In 2009, Borealis inaugurated its international Innovation Headquarters in Linz. Borealis employs roughly 1,700 people in Austria.

An additional EUR 75 million investment in a plant for catalyst production and development is currently being planned.

“Borealis and our owners pursue a long-term, world-wide growth strategy based on Value Creation through Innovation,” says Borealis Chief Financial Officer Daniel Shook. “We follow this strategy continuously with multi-million-Euro investments at our traditional locations in Europe but also in the Middle East throught our successful joint-venture, Borouge. To our customers in over 120 countries, we offer innovative solutions that create value for society.”

"Borealis is one of the leading companies in Austria and an essential national economic driving force. The bond supports Borealis in continuing with their significant investments,” says Franz Hochstrasser, Deputy Chairman of Erste Group.

"The Borealis bond is the first inaugural bond in Austria in 2010 and emphasises the importance of the bond market in corporate financing.

The bond is an enrichment to the portfolio of attractive Austrian companies and we expect – also due to the lack of alternative investing opportunities – a very strong demand, especially among private investors,” states Helmut Bernkopf, Member of the Board of Bank Austria, responsible for Corporates & Investmentbanking.
