Technip has been selected by Neste Oil Corporation as contractor for the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) of its new generation NExBTL renewable diesel plant to be built in Singapore. The companies intend to continue their partnership for other future NExBTL plants.
The plant, which represents an overall investment of approximately €550 million, will have a production capacity of 800,000 tons per year and will be the largest facility producing diesel fuel from renewable feedstocks.

Technip’s operating centers in Rome and Singapore will execute the contract.

The construction of the plant will begin in the first half of 2008.
