Foster Wheeler wins NZ contract

Foster Wheeler has been awarded a USD 90 million contract by the New Zealand Refining Company Ltd (NZRC) for the Future Fuels clean fuels project. The contract, which is the second stage of the project, covers the full engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) part of the project up to ready-for-start-up with assistance for the commissioning of the plant. Located at Whangarei, North Island, New Zealand, the contract involves the modification of New Zealand’s sole refinery to produce low-sulphur diesel fuel and low-benzene, -sulphur and -aromatics gasoline. Foster Wheeler plans to carry out engineering and procurement from its office in Sriracha, Thailand, one of four Foster Wheeler execution centres in the Asia Pacific region. The project management team will reside in New Zealand. Work began on the site in September 2003 and start-up of the new facilities is scheduled for August 2005.
