Foster Wheeler announced that its Global Engineering and Construction Group subsidiary is set to design and supply of a carbon monoxide (CO) incinerator package for a residue fluidized catalytic cracker in Vietnam under the contract.

Foster received the contract from JGC Corporation (UK), which is acting on behalf of the engineering, procurement and construction consortium for the $9bn Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical complex to be constructed in the Nghi Son Economic Zone, Thanh Hoa Province, Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

In accordance with the CO emissions requirements of the new complex, Foster Wheeler will design the incinerator, and will be shipped FOB (free on board) as one single module during the second quarter of 2015.

Foster Wheeler Global E&C Group CEO Roberto Penno said the award reinforces company’s position as a leading supplier of CO incinerator technology.

"Supplying this equipment as a single module reduces field construction time, delivering major safety and schedule benefits," Penno added.
