SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Technip’s third-quarter net profit rose 21% year on year to €146.3m ($190m) due to a better than expected order intake, the French engineering firm said on Thursday.
Revenue for the quarter increased by 22.8% year on year to €2.09bn, while earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) grew by 23.5% to €269.1m, the company said in a statement.

“Revenues and profits for the third quarter were in line with our expectations,” said Thierry Pilenko, chairman and CEO of Technip.

“For the remainder of this year, our focus continues as usual on completing our manufacturing plant and vessel schedules, and preparing the start-up phases of these capex projects scheduled for delivery in 2013,” he said.
