Technip Wins a Contract for Cargill’s New Ethanol Plant
The Group is strengthening its leading position in providing fermentation
ethanol production technology
PARIS -- April 14, 2014
Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) was awarded a contract
comprising detailed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the
core process units of Cargill’s new ethanol production plant located in Barby,
Germany. The production units will be built on a green field site alongside
Cargill’s existing wheat processing facility.
The ethanol is destined for beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry.
The new plant will consist of a fermentation unit and a
distillation/rectification unit. After completion of the construction works,
Technip will also assist with the start-up and performance testing of the new
Technip's operating center in Düsseldorf, Germany, will execute the contract,
which is scheduled to be completed by the second half of 2015.
Mesut Sahin, Managing Director of Technip in Germany, declared: “This EPC
contract follows the successful completion of our extended basic engineering
package performed for Cargill last year. The new units will accommodate the
latest technology developments in this field based on the feedback from a
similar plant built by Technip for Cargill at Sas van Gent, The Netherlands in
2005. This award reinforces Technip’s position as a leading provider of
biomass ethanol production technology.”
