Wood has been awarded a new contract by Evonik to deliver engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for the Group’s new polyamide 12 (PA12) production complex, to be built at the Marl Chemical Park, Marl, Germany.
PA12 is a high-performance polymer for special applications employed across various end markets including the automotive industry, oil & gas pipelines and 3D printing. The new facility will supplement the existing PA12 production plant, without disrupting existing production.
The contract grows Wood’s relationship with Evonik following efficient delivery of basic engineering, EPCM and commissioning support services to the specialty chemical company’s new world-scale methionine plant on Singapore’s Jurong Island. Successful mechanical completion for the project was achieved safely in December 2018 meeting all milestones of the EPC contract.
This award marks significant progress to develop its chemicals business and expertise across Europe.
Wood is committed to the safe, reliable and successful delivery of this major project supporting Evonik to achieve future PA12 production targets.
The project will be executed by Wood’s capital projects team based in Milan, Italy and is expected to be completed in the Q1 of 2021.
