Jacobs to supply gas heat exchangers for INEOS UK sulfuric acid plant

Jacobs Engineering Group has been awarded a design and fabrication contract by INEOS for two gas-gas heat exchangers to be installed in a sulfuric acid plant at its Runcorn, Cheshire site in the UK.

Officials did not disclose the contract value.

INEOS selected Jacobs' proprietary Chemetics radial flow gas-gas heat exchanger design over other available designs, citing the “most appropriate design and technical solution” for its plant.

The equipment is expected to be fabricated at Jacobs' facility in Pickering, Ontario.

“The award of this project confirms the technical strength of our proprietary equipment design, supported by our exceptional experience, and we look forward to working with INEOS Enterprises to add value to the performance and reliability of its plant,” said Jacobs vice president Andy Kremer.
