Technip has been awarded a contract for detailed engineering, procurement and construction for core process units at Cargill’s new ethanol production plant in Barby, Germany. The production units will be built on a Greenfield site which is next to Cargill’s existing wheat processing facility.
The ethanol will be predominantly for beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. The new plant will consist of a fermentation unit and a distillation/rectification unit. After completion of the construction works, Technip will also assist with the startup and performance testing for the new units. Technip’s operating centre in Dusseldorf, Germany, will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed by the second half of 2015.
Mesut Sahin, Managing Director, Technip, Germany said, "this EPC contract follows the successful completion of our extended basic engineering package performed for Cargill last year. The new units will accommodate the latest technology developments in this field based on the feedback from a similar plant built by Technip for Cargill at Sas van Gent, The Netherlands in 2005. This award reinforces Technip’s position as a leading provider of biomass ethanol production technology."
