Engineering firm Amec Foster Wheeler has signed a five-year global enterprise framework agreement with energy major Shell for downstream projects.
The agreement will include engineering, procurement and construction, or EPC, management services covering a wide array of transport services.
“We are excited to collaborate with Shell. Our innovative solutions in project design, delivery and management make us the top choice among our clients,” said John Pearson, president at Amec Foster Wheeler.
The firm has also been awarded a contract to construct and transport breakbulk components for a new steam reforming plant in Gela, Italy.
The EPC contract was awarded by Italian energy major Eni and was valued at €50 million. It is the first contract awarded to the EPC firm for a refinery conversion from “conventional” to “green” bio-fuel.
The project will include delivery of components for hydrogen production including Amec Foster Wheeler’s differentiated Terrace Wall fired heater system. Amec Foster Wheeler will also support Eni during commissioning, start-up and testing of the new steam reforming plant with completion scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2018.
Amec Foster Wheeler employs more than 40,000 people around the world and focuses on three key business units covering engineering, project delivery operations and power equipment. The firm operates in more than 55 countries.
