Riyadh, October 13, 2009
Foster Wheeler (FW) announced that its Global Engineering and Construction Group has won a process design contract from Sete Energy for the expansion of an industrial wastewater treatment plant in Saudi Arabia.
The plant is owned by Power & Water Utility Company for Jubail & Yanbu (Marafiq). Marafiq is the authority responsible for providing power generation, water supply and treatment utilities for the industrial complexes of Jubail and Yanbu in Saudi Arabia.
Sete Energy, the water treatment utilities developer and part of the Latsis Group, is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for this project.
Foster Wheeler’s contract value, which was not disclosed, will be included in the company’s third-quarter 2009 bookings.
Foster Wheeler will undertake the process design and provide technical assistance during pre-commissioning, commissioning and start-up phases. After the expansion, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2011, the plant will be able to treat 55,000 cubic meters a day of wastewater.
“Once again the collaboration of Sete Energy and Foster Wheeler has proved successful in the kingdom and we look forward to continuing the relationship that we have built to date,” said George Antonopoulos, chief executive officer, Sete Energy.-TradeArabia News Service
