China: Engineering Fluor Wins EPCM Contract for Valvoline’s Maiden Lubricants Facility
The 80,000-square-meter plant is Valvoline’s first plant in China and is expected to produce more than 30 million gallons of finished lubricants and coolants annually for passenger cars and heavy duty vehicles.
Texas/USA – Fluor Corporation has recently announced that it was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction management contract for Valvoline’s new blending and packaging facility in Zhangjiagang, China. The project is Valvoline’s first plant in China. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the fourth quarter of 2018.
With the growing automotive market in China, Fluor will assist Valvoline to meet the demand for its products by delivering the facility on schedule and is also bringing several cost-competitive innovations, including minimising onsite tank farm fabrication work, to perform the schedule-driven project.
The 80,000-square-meter plant will have the capacity to produce more than 30 million gallons of finished lubricants and coolants annually for passenger cars and heavy duty vehicles. More than 600 workers are expected onsite at peak during construction. Production at the plant is expected to begin by the end of 2020.
