Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today that it was awarded a contract from Bayer CropScience Australia to perform early stage engineering for an expansion project at their formulation plant in Kwinana, Western Australia.

Officials did not disclose the contract value.

Jacobs is generating and updating as-built site documentation to develop a design and cost estimate for a new bulk unloading and mixing system. After early stage engineering, subject to required approvals, Bayer intends to proceed the project into engineering procurement and construction management phases.

The project is expected to significantly increase Bayer’s production capability at Kwinana and improve its ability to service the Western Australian agricultural sector.

Jacobs Group Vice President Tom Quinn stated, “We are delighted to be working with Bayer on this important capacity expansion project. We look forward to supporting the project objectives by integrating our strong local capability in the region, along with our global sector experience.”

The Kwinana operation is responsible for formulation and distribution of broadacre products for Western Australia, and supporting South Australia and Victoria.

Bayer is a global enterprise with core competencies in the fields of health care, agriculture and high-tech materials. Bayer CropScience, responsible for the agricultural business, is one of the world’s leading crop science companies in the areas of seeds, crop protection and non-agricultural pest control.
