Fluor Awarded Chemicals Project for BASF in Germany
EPCM Services Contract for TDI Complex Project
IRVING, Texas & HAARLEM, the Netherlands -- February 19, 2013
Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it has secured a contract
for engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for
BASF’s toluene diisocyanate (TDI) Complex project at BASF’s site in
Ludwigshafen, Germany. Fluor booked the undisclosed value into backlog in the
fourth quarter of 2012.
The single-train, 300,000 metric tons-per-year plant will produce TDI and
expand additional plants as precursors for polyurethanes at the BASF site in
Ludwigshafen. Production is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2014.
Fluor has been involved in the project since 2011 performing support services
for both the pre-front-end engineering and design (pre-FEED) and the FEED work
for this project. TDI is a key component used for polyurethane foams. To a
large extent, it is used in the automotive industry (e.g., seating cushion and
interior applications) as well as in the furniture segment (e.g., flexible
foams for mattresses, cushions or wood coating).
“Fluor continues to expand its long resume for the design and construction of
new chemicals plants led from our Haarlem operations center,” said Peter
Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group.
Fluor’s Haarlem, the Netherlands, operations center will lead the project with
support from Gliwice, Poland. More than 800 Fluor craft workers are
contributing to the construction of the facility expansion.
