Neste Jacobs will perform the EPCM services for an upgrade and expansion of the Haltermann Carless’ production site in Speyer, Germany.
Speyer/Germany — The company has also performed the front end design and will be the technology provider for the investment which — subject to the approval of the local and environmental authorities — is targeted to be in production by the end of 2018. The parties had previously signed a Letter Of Intent for EPCM services.
A hydrogenation unit, based on Neste Jacobs’ Nexsat technology, will enable Haltermann Carless to process larger feedstock volumes and respond to the increasing demand for very low aromatic oils and specialty hydrocarbon chemicals, thus opening a wider range of possibilities for its customers, the contractor claims.
“As an important part of our company’s development strategy, we look forward to the support of Neste Jacobs in the engineering and construction of the plant”, comments Duncan Stonehouse, Chief Supply Chain Officer of HCS Group. “It will bring us an essential extension of production capacity to support the increasing demand for our specialised products. Neste Jacobs’ experience in hydrogenation technology and project management will be an indispensable part of our project progress.”
