Thai Oil Public Limited Company has awarded McConnell Dowell the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for the New Bang Phra Raw Water Line Project Pump Station Package in Thailand.
The project is located at Bang Phra Reservoir, Chonburi located approximately 16 km from the Thai Oil Public Company Limited (TOP) Refinery in Sriracha, where our McConnell Dowell team in Thailand successfully completed the construction of 4 km 36” HDPE Pipeline last year as part of the IDEA Project.
The project is linked to the overall Clean Fuel Project at Thai Oil’s Sriracha Refinery which requires an increase in raw water supply. The new Pump Station and Raw Water Pipeline will provide over 4,000m3/h of raw water and will replace the existing system.
Managing Director South East Asia Tom Dockray said he is proud of the way the team has lived the Group’s Values while securing this contract;
“This contract with Thai Oil builds on the relationship that developed through the IDEA Project. Through early engagement with the team we were able to understand the key drivers for the project and provide a technically robust and efficient solution.
The multidisciplinary nature of project has allowed McConnell Dowell to combine the Group’s global experience with its knowledge of the local region. The marine and civil works associated with the pier and cofferdam is also an opportunity for McConnell Dowell to further build the in-country expertise and capabilities.”
The works have commenced on site and are scheduled to be completed at the end of 2021.
