Wood to engineer Europe’s most innovative olefin complex

Wood has secured a new contract with INEOS in excess of $100 million to deliver engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCm) services for Project One, a new state-of-the-art petrochemicals complex in Antwerp, Belgium, which will deliver an ethane cracker with the lowest carbon footprint in Europe. - WoodPLC

Effective immediately, the four-year contract will be delivered by Wood’s Projects business unit. The scope is focused on the outside battery limit facilities for the ethane cracker and follows the successful completion of front-end engineering design for the facility. Wood’s integrated project management team will also continue to oversee the project, working closely with the INEOS project team.

The chemicals sector, like all industries, is forging its own path to carbon neutrality. What Project One represents is the next era of ethylene production, a key component in most plastics. Through the combination of technology and an innovative technical design approach, it will be the most sustainable and energy-efficient steam cracker in Europe. We are proud to have the opportunity to build on our strong relationship with INEOS by continuing to deliver on this major capital project, deploying the extensive petrochemicals expertise of our global engineering and project delivery teams.

Giuseppe Zuccaro, President of Process & Chemicals at Wood

At its peak Wood is expected to employ around 300 people on the project across its execution centres in Reading and Milan, its global engineering centre in India, and at the site in Antwerp during construction.
