SNC-Lavalin wins $1.5bn PVC plant deal

July 2018

SNC-Lavalin, a leading infrastructure and project management company, has signed an exclusive agreement with Project Development & Management International (PDMI) in Oman, to design and deliver a greenfield chlor-akali PVC plant 150 km southeast of the Omani capital Muscat.

As per the deal, SNC-Lavalin will give long-term support to the project – starting from concept development to commissioning, carrying out the initial engineering, masterplanning, process technology evaluation and selection to support project financial investment decision approvals.

The subsequent engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract is expected in Q1 2019, where SNC-Lavalin will execute the design and delivery, working alongside Omani contractors to maximise in-country value. SNC-Lavalin will also support the operations and maintenance of the plant.

The project capital cost is expected to be in the range of $1.5 billion, and will produce around a quarter of a million tonnes per annum of PVC destined for Asia, and around 140,000 tonnes per annum of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) that will support local industries.

“This contract is a major strategic win for us, helping to grow our business in the region and demonstrate our world-leading credentials in providing end to end solutions for large EPC projects,” said Christian Brown, President, Oil & Gas, SNC-Lavalin.
