Tebodin and Huntsman sign five-year partnership contracts

Two new partnership contracts between Tebodin, part of Bilfinger SE, and Huntsman underline the constructive relationship between the two companies. One agreement covers all engineering projects for Huntsman Holland on an EPCm (Engineering, Procurement, Construction management) basis and the other concerns Consultancy services. The contracts are signed on April 15th and will cover the cooperation of the companies for 5 years.


Huntsman Holland is located in the Botlek area in the port of Rotterdam with a 85 hectare site on which it produces differentiated chemicals. Tebodin has supported with comprehensive EPCm services in the construction of a MDI Splitter unit(Keystone project) in 2013. The unit is designed to handle globally sourced MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) precursor.


‘As Huntsman was still commissioning the new state-of-the-art MDI splitter Tebodin had already started working on the next investment, a downstream flexpolyols manufacturing unit which will enable Huntsman to serve customers with a full range of next-generation, differentiated polyurethane products for automotive, adhesives, coatings and other applications’, says Mr. Max van der Meer, Operations Director Europe.


Project Capstone will be commissioned in the next months and provides a more efficient manufacturing expansion within the existing polyols facility. ‘This challenging project will be brought to a successful conclusion by an integrated project team&rs quo;, says Mr. Björn Erkens, Director Tebodin Netherlands region West. ‘For the further development of the partnership we have executed teambuilding sessions, to develop an effective way of working together. The full integration of our teams will be continued and reinforced in the new partnership. When it comes to procurement for example, we will be working with Huntsman systems.’


The partnership contract was signed for an initial period of five years, after which there may be annual prolongations. Tebodin will manage a portfolio of engineering and procurement projects, starting with the upgrading of a control room, equipment replacement, and compliance-driven activities.
