BASF awards process engineering pact to Jacobs for Antwerp chemicals site

Jacobs Engineering Group received a frame agreement from BASF to provide engineering services at BASF’s integrated chemicals complex in Antwerp, Belgium, the companies said on Tuesday.

Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is providing process, piping and electrical/ instrumentation engineering services.

Officials did not disclose the contract value, but noted that the contract duration is three years.

BASF’s integrated approach to manufacturing, research, infrastructure, processes and management is known as Verbund, a German word meaning linked or integrated to the maximum degree. The Antwerp site is BASF’s second-largest Verbund site; it comprises more than 50 installations located on over two square miles.

“Having provided engineering services at this major production site since 2003, we are delighted to build upon our close working relationship with BASF," said Jacobs vice president Mark Bello.

"We look forward to continuing to support BASF’s Verbund principles at the site.”
