Jacobs Awarded Contract by Aurubis Bulgaria AD

December 20, 2011

PASADENA, Calif., Dec. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today its Chemetics® unit in Pickering, Ontario, Canada was awarded a design and fabrication contract by Aurubis Bulgaria AD for two proprietary designed sulfuric acid coolers to be installed in its acid plant in Pirdop, Bulgaria.

The scope of work involves the design and fabrication of drying and interpass anodically protected sulfuric acid coolers. The interpass cooler is being custom designed to operate in current operating mode, as well as allowing for use in a future heat recovery project. Jacobs worked with Aurubis engineering staff to develop a solution that would allow optimal performance in both distinctly different operating modes. These technical discussions also led to improvements in the process design for the water flow to the existing acid coolers.

Jacobs Group Vice President Andy Kremer stated, “We are delighted that Aurubis’ Pirdop site continues to place their trust in us to provide superior technical solutions.”

Jacobs’ Chemetics unit has had a long and mutually successful work relationship with the Pirdop facility since 1998. Past projects include acid coolers and the most recent project in 2007 for four Electrolyte Heaters.

Aurubis is a leading integrated copper group and the world’s largest copper recycler. It has 16 production sites in 11 European countries and the U.S., as well as an extensive service and sales system for copper products in Europe, Asia and North America. The Pirdrop facility is Aurubis’ connection to the Southeast European markets and produces anodes, cathodes and sulphuric acid.

Jacobs is one of the world’s largest and most diverse providers of technical, professional, and construction services.
