Italy: refinery expansions

Foster Wheeler Ltd has announced that its subsidiary Foster Wheeler Italiana has been awarded two contracts by ERG Raffinerie Mediterranee (ERG MED) for the expansion of the existing power station and for the realisation of a new ultra-desulphurisation unit at ERGMED’s owned and operated ISAB Refinery (South Plants) at Priolo Gargallo, Italy. Both contracts call for Foster Wheeler to provide engineering, procurement and construction supervision services (EPC). Total investment cost of the two projects is in excess of USD 160 million. The terms of the contracts were not disclosed. The expansion of the existing power station consists of one 72 MW turbogas and one heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) with postfiring and will bring the total capacity of the power plant to 99 MW. The ultra-desulphurisation unit will produce gasoil with low sulphur content in order to meet the new European Specifications for Auto Oil. Both plants will be completed by the end of 2005.
