Técnicas Reunidas awarded contract for a new Plant in Canada

Argex Canada has awarded Tecnicas Reunidas an EPC contract for a 50,000 tpa Titanium Dioxide plant in Canada.

The EPC Contract will be performed in two phases. The first phase is the front end engineering design completion (FEED/FEL3) work and the second phase will be for the Detailed Design and Construction portion of the Project. The FEED/FEL3 will be undertaken at TR’s headquarters in Madrid based on Argex’s basic design process package for an expected cost of USD 10 million.

Upon completion of the Initial phase, the parties will agree on a guaranteed target contract price (“GTCP”) for later conversion under mutual agreement for a guaranteed target contract price for the Engineering Procurement and Construction. The GTCP will be based on a 50/50 shared cost savings/overrun approach between Argex Canada and TR. The GTCP’s expected value will be determined during the Initial Period but the overall value of the EPC Contract (including the FEED/FEL3 portion) is currently estimated at approximately USD 200 million.

Now that the EPC contract is signed, engineering works are expected to commence when Argex receives the financing for project of which Argex recently announced that it had completed the technical due diligence, an important step towards financial close.

“The finalization of the EPC Contract represents an important step in the realization of our Project”, stated Richard Poulin, Executive Vice President of Argex, “Tecnicas Reunidas’ deep experience in similar projects and TR’s know-how acquired from its own in-house solvent extraction technology facility represent an important value-added to the construction of our Valleyfield facility.”
