Germany: Engineering Services Synthomer Awards Pöyry with Revamping Contract
Synthomer has awarded Pöyry with the detail engineering services assignment for the revamp of its dispersion plant in Worms, Germany.
Worms/Germany — The assignment includes detail engineering services for all disciplines as well as Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) management, permitting engineering, cost control and project scheduling. Project completion is expected in the course of the third quarter 2018.
Synthomer's € 20 million total investment cost (TIC) adds several new and fully automated production lines for acrylic dispersions used in paints & coatings, construction chemicals, technical textiles as well as adhesives and sealants.
The investment will add 30,000 tonnes to its existing capacity. According to the the engineering contractor, the high flexibility of the newly constructed lines enabled further organic growth in the specialty segments, since more than 25 % of the new capacity would be utilised by innovative, highly environmentally friendly products.
