LONDON (ICIS)--Jacobs has won a contract from Paradeep Phosphates Limited (PPL) to provide project management consultancy (PMC) services for the India-based manufacturer’s sulphuric acid plant expansion project in Paradeep, Orissa, the US petrochemicals engineering firm said on Tuesday.
Officials did not disclose the contract value, but said the total contract duration is 24 months.
Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs will oversee the work of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors as they expand PPL’s sulphuric acid plant to enable an estimated capacity of over 2,000 tonnes/day. PPL’s current capacity was not disclosed.
The expansion project also includes a retrofit of the heat recovery system in PPL’s existing sulphuric acid plants, plus a new captive power plant and allied outside boundary limits (OSBL) facilities, Jacobs said.
PPL is owned by Zuari Holdings, Moroccan fertilizer producer Office Cherifien des Phosphates (OCP) and the government of India.
