Jacobs wins contract from Lotte Chemical  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (Pasadena, Calif.; www.jacobs.com) was awarded a contract by Lotte Chemical UK Ltd. to provide construction management services for a new polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plant to be built at the Wilton International Site in Redcar, Cleveland, U.K. Officials did not disclose the contract value, but noted the contract is scheduled for 18 months. The new 200,000 metric tons per annum PET plant (LC1 project) being built is located on an integrated pure terephthalic acid (PTA) and PET site, adjacent to Lotte’s existing PET plant. The addition of the new line fortifies the capacity of Lotte Chemical UK’s existing T8 facility and supports its transition into a wider range of PET products, including resins incorporating post consumer recycled PET.
