McDermott International has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract from Unipetrol RPA for its refinery in Litvinov, Czech Republic.
The contract includes the full suite of EPCM services for the upgrade of Unipetrol's hydrocracking unit. McDermott previously completed the feasibility study and basic engineering design and will now execute the procurement and installation phase.
"This award is testament to McDermott's long-standing relationship and extensive track record with Unipetrol," said Tareq Kawash, McDermott's senior vice president for Europe, Africa, Russia and Caspian. "We believe our ability to combine local knowledge and global expertise makes us uniquely positioned to execute this project."
The project is scheduled to be fully executed from McDermott's Brno, Czech Republic, office with completion expected in second quarter 2020.
