MEGlobal, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Equate Petrochemical Company, has awarded a contract for mechanical construction of its new monoethylene glycol (MEG) manufacturing facility in Freeport, Texas to Fluor Corporation. The scope of mechanical construction includes the installation of equipment, steel and piping for the MEG process unit.

“This is Fluor’s fifth major construction project in Freeport over the past six years,” said Jack Penley, senior vice president of Construction & Fabrication for Fluor. “This will be MEGlobal’s first manufacturing unit in the United States, and our construction team’s focus on safety and quality are among the reasons that Fluor is the construction contractor of choice for the Freeport market.”

About 1,000 craft professionals are expected at peak construction for Fluor’s scope. Operations at the new facility are expected to begin in 2019, the global engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction and maintenance company said.

MEGlobal is a world leader in the manufacture, supply and marketing of monoethylene glycol (MEG) and diethylene glycol (DEG), collectively known as ethylene glycol (EG). MEG is a key building block for polyester fibres, plastic bottles and other everyday items. (RKS)
