By Gerald Ondrey |

Foster Wheeler Ltd. (Hamilton, Bermuda; www.fwc.com) announced today that its subsidiary Foster Wheeler International Corp. (Thailand branch), part of its Global Engineering and Construction Group, has been awarded contracts by MTP HPPO Manufacturing Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Siam Styrene Monomer Co. Ltd., a joint venture between The Dow Chemical Co. and Siam Cement Group (SCG), relating to a new chemicals facility at Banchang, near Map Ta Phut in Thailand. Foster Wheeler will perform the engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) for a new 390,000 ton/yr propylene oxide (PO) facility and for the Power, Utilities and Infrastructure (PUI) Project, which will serve the new chemicals facilities. Foster Wheeler’s Thailand operation has already completed the front-end design for the PUI Project. Further, Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract for overall services support. The PO plant is expected to come online in 2011. PO is a chemical intermediate used in the production of raw materials for a wide range of industrial and commercial products, including polyurethanes, propylene glycol, and glycol ethers.
