LONDON (ICIS)--Jacobs has won a contract from South Korea’s Lotte Chemical for work on a planned 200,000 tonne/year polyethylene terephthalate (PET) facility in the UK, the US-based petrochemicals engineering firm said on Tuesday.

Jacobs said its contract included construction management services for the project, which will be built adjacent to Lotte's existing PET and purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plants in Wilton in northeast England.

Jacobs did not disclose financial terms or timelines for completion, but it said that “the contract is scheduled for 18 months.”

In June, Germany-based Uhde-Inventa-Fisher said it won a contract from Lotte to provide basic and detail engineering for the PET project.
