ICA Fluor bags  vinyl chloride monomer plant revamp contract

IRVING, US: ICA Fluor, industrial engineering-construction joint venture of Fluor Corporation and Empresas ICA, has signed a contract with Petroquimica Mexicana de Vinilo (PMV), a joint venture between Mexichem and Pemex, for the revamp of the vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) plant located within the Pajaritos petrochemical complex, near Veracruz, Mexico. The total contract value is approximately $205 million.

ICA Fluor will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, maintenance and commissioning services of the works to bring the VCM facility to its nameplate capacity of 405,000 tonne per year from its current nearly 200,000 tonne per year. The project is planned to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015. This revamp project will correct problems that have prevented the plant from reaching its nameplate capacity.
