Egypt: Engineering Fluor Wins FEED Contract by Enppi
The contract has been bagged for the Waphco phosphoric acid production plant in Egypt. Once completed, the facility is expected to produce 500,000 metric tonnes-per-year of wet process phosphoric acid.
Cairo/Egypt – Fluor Corporation has recently announced that it has been awarded the front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by Egypt’s state energy firm Enppi. Work will be carried out for the offsites and utilities portion of the main plant complex and support services for the Waphco phosphoric acid production plant at Abu Tartour, in the Egyptian province of New Valley. Fluor will book the undisclosed contract value in the first quarter of 2018.
The contract signing ceremony was held earlier this month in Cairo and was presided over by His Excellency Tarek El Molla, minister of Petroleum and Natural Resources of the Arab Republic of Egypt. Working with Enppi as an integrated team, Fluor will fast-track the FEED for the plant, which will use resources from the Abu Tartour mine to produce merchant-grade phosphoric acid. The project scope includes all process facilities including a sulfuric acid plant, utilities with a cogeneration system, storage and other required units. Once completed, the facility will produce 500,000 metric tonnes-per-year of wet process phosphoric acid.
