Foster Wheeler Ltd. announced that Milan-based Foster Wheeler Italiana S.p.A., part of its Global Engineering and Construction Group, has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction supervision contract by The Kuwait Olefins Company (K.S.C.C.), ("TKOC") for a grassroots ethylene-glycol unit (EG2 Project) to be built at Shuaiba Industrial Area, Kuwait. TKOC is a joint-venture company with the majority shareholders being Petrochemical Industries Company (K.S.C.), ("PIC") a wholly owned subsidiary of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, and Dow Europe Holding B.V., a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company.

The new world-scale EG2 unit, with a total capacity of 600,000 metric tonnes per year, is part of TKOC's planned Olefins II ethylene and derivatives complex. It will use Union Carbide's METEOR(TM) ethylene oxide/ethylene glycol process technology. It is scheduled to be completed by the second quarter of 2008.

"We successfully completed a 340,000 metric tonnes per year ethylene glycol plant, part of the EQUATE I project, at the same location during the late 1990s," said Umberto della Sala, chief executive officer, Foster Wheeler Global Engineering and Construction Group."
