Fluor wins new polymers-plant contract in Saudi Arabia  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Fluor Corp. (Irving, Tex.; www.fluor.com) has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by SAPCo, a joint venture company being formulated between Saudi Acrylic Acid Co. (Riyadh; www.saharapcc.com) and Evonik Industries AG (Essen, Germany; www.evonik.com), for its Super Absorbent Polymer Project (SAP) in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the second quarter of 2011. The SAP project work is under way and is expected to be completed and commissioned by the fourth quarter of 2013. The end product, super absorbent polymer, is used in the manufacture of disposable diapers. This SAP project is part of a larger program being developed by Saudi Acrylic Acid Co., for which Fluor has been engaged since the early developments of the project. Nearly 200 professional staff in Fluor’s Haarlem, Manila and Al Khobar offices (Netherlands, Philippines and Saudi Arabia respectively) will be engaged on the project, plus a construction staff of nearly 700 workers at peak.
