UK: EPC Project Fluor Announces Progress on Ineos’ New Energy Plant
Under the agreement, Fluor is responsible for engineering, procurement and construction of the energy facility. The new plant is expected to produce high pressure steam which will be used in industrial processes undertaken at the Grangemouth complex.
Farnborough/UK – Fluor Corporation has recently announced that its engineering, procurement and construction project for Ineos’ new energy plant is underway and has made significant progress. The facility is located at the Grangemouth refinery complex on the Firth of Forth in Scotland.
The new energy plant will replace existing facilities that have been providing steam and power to the refinery and petrochemical plants for more than 40 years. The new plant will have the capacity to produce high pressure steam to be used in the industrial processes undertaken at the Grangemouth complex. The plant will also generate electricity to support the site’s self-sufficiency and export.
Fluor’s scope of work includes design, procurement, construction and commissioning support for three boilers to create superheated high pressure steam. A pipe bridge will be built to provide a connection to the wider site.
Fluor’s Farnborough office is leading the project supported by the company’s global experts and is working in an integrated team with Ineos engineers. Fluor previously undertook the front-end engineering design for the new energy plant.
