Jacobs gets Solvay specialty polymers plant contract in China

PASADENA, US: Jacobs Engineering Group announced that it has been awarded a contract from Solvay for a major, specialty polymers production plant to be built at Solvay’s industrial site in Changshu, Jiangsu province, China. Officials estimate the contract value to be approximately $9 million. Jacobs is executing the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services contract from its Shanghai operations in China.

Solvay is investing approximately $160 million in this plant, which will produce its products SOLEF PVDF and TECNOFLON FKM, as well as its essential VF2 monomer. The plant is scheduled to become operational in the first quarter of 2014 and is expected to significantly boost Solvay’s global production capacity for these specialty polymers. “We look forward to contribute to this large and significant project for Solvay, drawing upon our strong, sector-relevant technical and project management skills to support the project,” said Tom Quinn, Vice President, Jacobs.
