Jacobs awarded contract from Honeywell and Sinochem  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (Pasadena, Calif.; www.jacobs.com) was awarded a contract to provide engineering and procurement services for a newly formed joint venture (JV) between Honeywell and Sinochem. Officials did not disclose the construction value but did announce that production is expected to start in late 2013. The work is being executed by Jacobs’ operations in Mt. Laurel, N.J. and Shanghai, China. The JV, to be located in Taicang, Jiangsu Province, plans to produce HFC-245fa, a non-ozone-depleting rigid foam blowing agent used in insulation for appliances, construction, transportation and other applications where maximum energy efficiency is required. Honeywell’s newly launched next generation HFO lower-global-warming-potential blowing agent — Solstice Liquid Blowing Agent — may also be produced by the JV.
