Fluor to build new Valvoline facility in China


On Feb. 14, 2019 Fluor Corporation announced its engineering and construction management contract for Valvoline’s new blending and packaging facility to be built in Zhangjiagang, China. 

The company’s first plant in China will help meet the demand for its products. “Fluor is bringing several cost-competitive innovations, including minimizing onsite tank farm fabrication work, to perform this schedule-driven project,” said Sandeep Nibber, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in Asia-Pacific, in the press release.

Production of the 80,000-square-meter plant will begin by the end of 2020. It will have the capacity to produce more than 30 million gallons of finished lubricants and coolants annually for passenger cars and heavy duty vehicles. More than 600 workers are expected onsite during construction.
