LONDON (CNI)--Anglo-Norwegian engineering group Kvaerner said Thursday it has won a Euro15m ($13m) contract to expand Teijin Twaron's spinning facilities in Emmen, The Netherlands.
Teijin Twaron is expanding its annual production of Twaron para-linked aramid fibre at its two Dutch sites of Emmen and Delfzijl by a total of 7500 tonne to 18 500 tonne. It will also expand production of monomers and polymers in Delfzijl.
The total investment cost for Emmen and Delfzijl projects is Euro200m, of which half will be spent at Emmen.
Teijin Twaron, which is the Dutch subsidiary of Japanese synthetic fibres producer Teijin, has already selected engineering firms Tebodin and Stork ICM to expand the Delfzijl facility.
Kvaerner will carry out engineering, procurement and construction services for the Emmen project, which it described as a "major capacity increase". The project is scheduled for completion in April 2003 and will be executed by Kvaerner E&C's (engineering and construction) operations in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands. Activities at the construction site have already begun.
