Jacobs bags Sanmar’s PVC-2 expansion contract in Egypt

PASADENA, US: Jacobs Engineering Group Inc has been awarded a contract to provide detailed engineering and procurement assistance services to TCI Sanmar Chemical SAE (TCI Sanmar Group) for its polyvinyl chloride (PVC-2) plant expansion project in Port Said, Egypt.

When complete, the PVC-2 facility’s production capacity is expected to be 200 kilo-tonnes per annum (KTPA). Combined with its other global facilities, this takes TCI Sanmar’s total PVC production capacity to 400 KTPA, strengthening the company’s position as one of the largest PVC producers in the Middle East and North Africa.

The project’s schedule includes 18 months of engineering and 21 months for mechanical completion.

“We are delighted to continue our relationship with TCI Sanmar. I’m confident our global experience in the industry combined with our strong local knowledge can contribute significant value to this strategically important facility," said Vinayak Pai, senior VP, Jacobs.
