PASADENA, US: Jacobs Engineering Group Inc has received a contract from Borealis to provide engineering, procurement, project management and construction management services for a project designed to increase cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) production capacity at its manufacturing site in Stenungsund, Sweden. The contract value was not disclosed.

Jacobs is working to debottleneck an existing XLPE compounding and soaking train and increase the intermediate storage capacity of the XLPE base resin in the upstream polymerization plant. The scope of work involves installation of new silos and conversion of film silos, as well as installation of conveying systems.

“We are pleased to continue to support Borealis in its mission to provide high-quality products that create value for society. Because we perform a portfolio of other projects for them, we are able to leverage our experience with their XLPE technology and their Stenungsund cracker plant and maximize the value we can provide on this project,” said Mark Bello, Vice President, Jacobs Group.
