Toyo Engineering Corp., in consortium with Brazilian UTC Engenharia S.A. and Construtora Norberto Odebrecht S.A., has been awarded a contract from Petrobras for utilities construction to be installed in the Comperj refinery project in Itaborai, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Toyo consortium’s scope of work is for detailed design, procurement and construction (EPC) on a lump sum contract, the company said.

The project is scheduled to be completed in 2014.

This project is regarded as prime importance by Petrobras, who will utilize heavy oil produced in local oil fields as feedstock for increasing domestic demand for light oil and petrochemical products, project officials said.

Toyo’s project experiences for Petrobras exerted in technical capability, performance and cooperation with local partners have led to customer confidence and resulted in obtaining the contract, the company said.

In addition, the water treatment facilities included in this project will be the largest ever for Toyo, and is expected to provide a boost to the expansion of Toyo’s focus on infrastructure business, according to the company.
