Lotte Chemical awards construction deal to Jacobs for PET project in UK

09.11.2012  | 

The new 200,000 tpy PET plant being built at Wilton is located on an integrated PTA and PET site, adjacent to Lotte’s existing PET plant. The addition of the new line fortifies the capacity of Lotte Chemical’s existing T8 facility and supports its transition into a wider range of PET products.

Jacobs Engineering was awarded a contract by Lotte Chemical UK to provide construction management services for a new polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plant to be built at the Wilton site in Redcar, Cleveland.

Officials did not disclose the contract value in Tuesday's announcement, noting that the contract is scheduled for 18 months.

The new 200,000 tpy PET plant being built is located on an integrated pure terephthalic acid (PTA) and PET site, adjacent to Lotte’s existing PET plant.

The addition of the new line fortifies the capacity of Lotte Chemical’s existing T8 facility and supports its transition into a wider range of PET products, including resins incorporating post consumer recycled PET, the company said.

“Jacobs has been selected to support us on this very important project for Lotte on the basis of their strong local presence and capable personnel, backed up by industry experience,” said Lotte Chemical chief operating officer Gary Conroy.

Jacobs vice president Bob Irvin added: "Jacobs has a strong local presence in Northeast England that allows us to deploy our full service offering effectively, ranging from consultancy and multidisciplinary design, to construction management and maintenance services.”

Lotte Chemical is a UK subsidiary of KP Chemical Corp., part of the Korean Lotte group.
