Technip Energies awarded EPC contract for Neste’s Rotterdam plant expansion
Technip Energies has been awarded a significant* contract by Neste Corp. for the expansion of its renewable products production capacity in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, as part of the existing partnership agreement between Technip Energies and Neste.
The contract covers engineering, procurement services and construction management (EPC) for the expansion of Neste’s existing renewables refinery in Rotterdam, which will increase Neste’s overall renewable product capacity by 1.3 million tons per year.
This contract follows the front-end engineering and design (FEED) delivered by Technip Energies in 2021.
The production process is based on Neste’s proprietary NEXBTL™ state-of-the-art technology, which allows the conversion of renewable waste and residue raw materials like used cooking oil and animal fat waste into renewable fuels.
“We are pleased to be entrusted once again by Neste for the expansion of their renewable products production platform in Rotterdam,” said Bhaskar Patel, Technip Energies’ senior vice president of sustainable Fuels, chemicals and circularity. “This award relies on our long-term collaboration, illustrated by the successful delivery of two world-scale renewable products refineries in Rotterdam and Singapore and the ongoing expansion project of Neste’s renewable products refinery in Singapore. We are committed to make this project a success as we share a common vision of accelerating the transition towards a sustainable future, using technological advancement as a key lever.”
Technip Energies offers a wide range of services and proprietary and partnership-based technologies, including biodiesel and biojet production technologies as well as first- and second-generation ethanol processes.
It operates in 34 countries and has 15,000 employees.
