IRVING, US/HAARLEM, THE NETHERLANDS: Fluor Corporation has secured a contract for engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for BASF’s toluene diisocyanate (TDI) complex project at BASF’s site in Ludwigshafen, Germany. The single-train, 300,000 metric tonne per year plant will produce TDI and expand additional plants as precursors for polyurethanes at the BASF site in Ludwigshafen.

Production is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2014. Fluor has been involved in the project since 2011 performing support services for both the pre-front-end engineering and design (pre-FEED) and the FEED work for this project. “Fluor continues to expand its long resume for the design and construction of new chemicals plants led from our Haarlem operations centre,” said Peter Oosterveer, President, Energy & Chemicals, Fluor Group.
