Amec Foster Wheeler wins Hyundai Engineering contract for GTL plant in Uzbekistan

Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a lump sum contract by Hyundai Engineering Co. Ltd for the delivery of hydrogen plant technology and design and materials supply for a Terrace WallTM steam reformer heater for Uzbekneftegaz National Holding Company’s OLTIN YO’L GTL (gas-to-liquid) plant which is under construction in the Kashkadarya Region of Uzbekistan.

Amec Foster Wheeler’s scope of work includes the basic design engineering for the 37,100 Nm3/h (normal cubic metres per hour) hydrogen unit, the basic and detailed engineering, and procurement for the steam reformer heater, plus site advisory services. Amec Foster Wheeler is currently in the detailed engineering phase for the plant's Terrace WallTM steam reformer, which is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2018.

This contract supports Amec Foster Wheeler’s strategy to extend its technology offerings, including its leading hydrogen production and unique Terrace WallTM steam reformer technologies.

The Terrace WallTM design is a unique and fully proven global technology, part of Amec Foster Wheeler’s wider suite of innovative technologies which supports customers across the world. In addition to this contract win, in the last year Amec Foster Wheeler has announced contracts for its proprietary Terrace WallTM reformer technology in Russia, Egypt and Italy.“
 
"This award confirms the impressive performance of Amec Foster Wheeler’s hydrogen technology as well as the proven advantages of our Terrace Wall steam reformers. The combination of Terrace Wall reformers’ capital cost-competitiveness, energy consumption efficiency, very high reliability and compact “footprint”, ideal where space is limited, especially within existing facilities, is a compelling value proposition for our customers. We look forward to working closely with Hyundai Engineering, the Engineering Procurement and Construction contractor, to deliver the hydrogen technology and steam reformer heater for this advanced gas-to-liquids facility"
 
Andy Hemingway, Vice President of Technology, Consultancy and Fired Heaters, Amec Foster Wheeler
