Foster Wheeler bags Sadara’s packaging centre contract in Saudi Arabia

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG’s Global Engineering and Construction group subsidiaries is awarded an engineering and procurement contract by Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara) for a packaging centre at Jubail Industrial City in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. The Foster Wheeler contract value for the project was not disclosed.

The packaging centre will be part of a world-scale, fully integrated chemicals complex built by Sadara (Saudi Arabian Oil Company - Saudi Aramco and Dow Chemical joint venture). When complete, the complex - the largest ever built in a single phase - will be owned and operated by Sadara.

Expected to be completed in second half of 2014, the packaging centre will serve as a logistics handling hub for Sadara’s chemical complex. The facility will handle packaging, storage and loading of high value-added chemical products and performance plastics for road and rail transport within Saudi Arabia and for export to overseas markets.

“Foster Wheeler is honoured to be awarded a contract by Sadara for the packaging centre. This is the second major unit awarded to Foster Wheeler under its FEED contract with Sadara, the first being the propylene oxide unit which was awarded in December 2011,” said Umberto della Sala, Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler AG.

“Underpinned by our proven track record in providing world-class project execution and project management skills, Foster Wheeler is committed to bringing our global in-depth technical experience and expertise to assist Sadara in realizing its project and investment goals safely and with no compromise on quality,” added della Sala.
