Jacobs Engineering Group was awarded two contracts by Foskor Ltd. to design and fabricate two final acid towers and one acid cooler for Foskor’s sulfuric acid plants in Richards Bay, South Africa.

The contract value was not disclosed.

Under the terms of the deal, Jacobs is designing the equipment and process for two final acid towers using Jacobs' proprietary Chemetics alloy SARAMET.

Jacobs is also designing and fabricating a proprietary anodically-protected sulfuric acid cooler, which will be manufactured at Jacobs' facility in Pickering, Ontario, Canada.

Meanwhile, the company plans to manage local fabrication and site coordination from Jacobs' operations in South Africa.

“This project builds on a successful acid cooler replacement that Jacobs completed for Foskor in 2009,” said Jacobs vice president Andy Kremer.
