Expansion of a Thermoplastic Production Facility
A major European engineering company has signed three engineering, procurement & construction contracts with a thermoplastics company, detailing a comprehensive expansion project for a thermoplastic complex based within the Middle East.
The three engineering contracts detail the execution of three packages in total for the expansion project:
- the “polyolefin units’ package”, which includes two polyethylene units with a capacity of 700,000 tons per year each
