Foster Wheeler new contract with GS Engineering & Construction Corporation

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler’s subsidiary of Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded a contract for two Terrace Wall hydrogen reformers by GS Engineering & Construction Corporation, which is acting on behalf of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) consortium for the $9 billion Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical (NSRP) complex to be constructed in the Nghi Son Economic Zone, Thanh Hoa Province, Socialist Republic of Vietnam. The contract value was not disclosed.

Foster Wheeler will design and supply the reformers, which will be designed to be capable of producing a combined total of 145,000 tonne of hydrogen per annum. The hydrogen reformers will be key components within the Nghi Son Refinery hydrogen manufacturing unit. Delivery of the reformers is expected to be completed during the fourth quarter of 2015.

“This major award by the NSRP EPC consortium demonstrates confidence in Foster Wheeler’s technology in hydrogen reforming and our ability to design to exacting specifications. Our Terrace Wall reformer, as well as being extremely efficient and reliable, is very well suited to the modular execution strategy adopted for this hydrogen unit. Large sections of the reformers will be designed to be delivered fully assembled, maximizing offsite activity and delivering schedule benefits. Our Fired Heater groups in Reading, United Kingdom and Milan, Italy will combine their expert resources to execute this important project,” said Umberto della Sala, Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler AG.
