Technip Wins Cargill Ethanol Contract in Germany

15.04.2014 -

France's Technip has won a contract for engineering, procurement and construction (EPD) from U.S. agriculture giant Cargill for the new €60 million bioethanol plant scheduled to go on stream in autumn 2015 at Barby, Germany.

Cargill processes wheat to starch and starch derivatives in the town located in the eastern German state of Saxony-Anhalt.

The ethanol unit will include a fermentation unit and a distillation/rectification unit.

Mesut Sahin, managing director of Technip in Germany, said the contract follows the successful completion of an extended basic engineering package for Cargill last year. The new units will accommodate the latest technology developments in this field based on the feedback from a similar plant it built for Cargill at Sas van Gent, The Netherlands in 2005.
