Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has recently received a contract to provide detailed engineering and procurement assistance services to TCI Sanmar Chemical S.A.E. (TCI Sanmar) for its PVC-2 polyvinyl chloride plant expansion project in Port Said, Egypt. Upon completion, the PVC-2 facility’s production capacity is expected to be 200 kilo-tonnes per annum (KTPA). Combined with its other global facilities, this takes TCI Sanmar’s total PVC production capacity to 400 KTPA, strengthening the company’s position as one of the largest PVC producers in the Middle East and North Africa.
The project’s schedule includes 18 months of engineering and 21 months for mechanical completion. Jacobs Senior Vice President Vinayak Pai stated, “We are delighted to continue our relationship with TCI Sanmar. I’m confident our global experience in the industry combined with our strong local knowledge can contribute significant value to this strategically important facility."
