MANGALORE, INDIA: Technip was awarded by JBF Petrochemicals, a wholly owned subsidiary of JBF Industries Ltd, an important contract for a 1.25 million tonne per year latest-generation purified terephthalic acid (PTA) unit, to be located in the Special Economic Zone in Mangalore, India. PTA is the primary feedstock for polyesters used in textiles and packaging.

The contract covers the basic engineering, front-end engineering design, detailed engineering and procurement services for the ISBL (Inside Battery Limit) and the OSBL (Outside Battery Limit) of the unit. The scope of work also includes supply of materials and construction management services for the ISBL. The plant will feature BP’s leading-edge proprietary PTA technology.

Technip’s operating centres in Rome, Italy and in Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi, India will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the first semester of 2015. “With the commissioning of this plant, it will be a major step for JBF towards backward integration. JBF is proud to be associated with BP and look forward to utilizing Technip’s competency in setting up this world scale project,” said B C Arya, Chairman, JBF Industries.
