Técnicas Reunidas accelerates in the final stretch of the year to reach its recruitment target of 4,000 million euros. Spanish engineering has been awarded the contract for the construction of a new polypropylene petrochemical production complex in Turkey. The scope of the project for the group chaired by Juan Lladó amounts to 550 million euros.
The complex, located in the province of Adana, in the southeast of the country, is promoted by Ceyhan Polipropilen Üretim A., a joint venture made up of the Turkish group Rönesans Holding and the Algerian company Sonatrach , which has commissioned its execution, through an EPCC type contract (engineering, supply, construction and commissioning), to an association formed by Técnicas Reunidas and by the construction subsidiary of the Rönesans group itself.
The contract will involve an investment of just over 1,000 million euros , of which around 550 million will correspond to the Spanish company. Although the contract has not yet been signed, which will be produced in the coming weeks, the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan , has already laid the first stone of the project.
Técnicas Reunidas thus strengthens its position in Turkey, where it is currently executing two other projects, consisting of the execution of two terephthalic acid plants (PTA), one for SASA and the other for Socar . In his career in the country he has developed 15 initiatives.
Apart from its growth in Turkey, engineering has also been selected by the Russian company Lukoil for the development of a modern polypropylene production unit, which will use secondary streams from the refining process, at its refinery in Nizhny Novgorod. Técnicas Reunidas will be in charge of the design engineering (FEED) of the project and of estimating the costs for its possible conversion to a future EPC phase of the installation.
