Jacobs Awarded Contract From NatureWorks

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today that it has been selected to provide engineering services for NatureWorks’ new Ingeo™ production plant in Southeast Asia. Ingeo is a biopolymer made from locally abundant renewable plant materials.

Officials did not disclose the contract value, but noted that Jacobs expects to execute the multi-year project primarily from its Greenville, S.C. office.

Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is providing front-end engineering design work, including major equipment design.

Earlier this year, NatureWorks expanded its flagship Blair, Neb. facility to increase Ingeo capacity to 150,000 metric tons annually. Thailand is currently NatureWorks’ preferred plant location for its second facility.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Chris Nagel stated, “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with NatureWorks as they expand support to their clients in the Asia Pacific region and increase their global production efforts.”

NatureWorks Director of Manufacturing and Engineering Steve Bray added, “Jacobs has extensive experience in polymer and chemical plant design and construction. This contract is the next stage of what we anticipate will be a three-year project to include detailed engineering design, procurement, construction, and plant start-up.”

NatureWorks is jointly owned by Thailand’s largest chemical producer, PTT Global Chemical, and Cargill, an international producer and marketer of food, agricultural, financial, and industrial products and services.

Jacobs is one of the world's largest and most diverse providers of technical, professional, and construction services.
