ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction subsidiary has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) contract by Lanxess Changzhou Co Ltd for a new ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber plant to be built at the Changzhou Yangtze Riverside Industrial Park at Changzhou, Jiangsu Province, in the People’s Republic of China. Foster Wheeler is currently executing the front-end engineering design (FEED) for this facility.

The Foster Wheeler contract value for this project was not disclosed and was included in the company’s third-quarter 2012 bookings. The new facility will be designed to produce 160,000 tonne per annum of EPDM rubber. The plant is expected to start up in 2015.

Foster Wheeler is working as the EPCm contractor on three of Lanxess’ major projects in Asia,” said Umberto della Sala, Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler AG.
