WCN Editorial Team 13 Apr 2016 MIDDLE EAST BUILDINGS

Hanwha Engineering & Construction (Hanwha E&C) has secured a $400m EPC contract from Saudi Calcined Petroleum Coke (SCPC) for a chemical plant in Saudi Arabia.

The contract marks Hanwha E&C's third chemical order in Saudi Arabia and follows the construction of an ethylamine chemical plant in 2010 and the $900m under-construction phosphoric acid plant.

The new chemical plant will be located in the Jubail 2 Industrial City, southeast of Saudi Arabia. When completed, the facility will be capable of producing 670,000 tonnes of calcined petroleum coke annually.

Hanwha E&C carried out the design work in advance through the early work agreement, which enabled the Korean construction company to enhance the design accuracy.

Construction is expected to be completed by the first half of 2018.
