Amec Foster Wheeler has announced that it has been awarded a lump sum turn-key contract in excess of €50 million by Eni SpA for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a new steam reforming plant for hydrogen production to be built at its refinery at Gela, Italy.
Building on its long-standing relationship with the supermajor, Amec Foster Wheeler was hired by Eni as part of a major investment programme in Italy to convert its refineries from ‘conventional’ to ‘green’ bio-refineries, and will use proven hydrogen technology and differentiated Terrace WallTM fired heater.
Marco Moresco, Amec Foster Wheeler’s President, Downstream Capital Projects Europe, Middle East and Africa, said, “This is the first contract that Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded in the new ‘green refineries’ market, and represents an area in which we see significant growth potential. Amec Foster Wheeler’s work for Eni will involve using our proprietary technology to maximise the value of their assets, and we’re delighted that it builds on the long-term relationship we have with Eni.”
