Amec Foster Wheeler announced that it has been awarded a lump sum turn-key contract in excess of 50 million by Eni SpA for the engineering, procurement and construction of a new steam reforming plant for hydrogen production to be built at its refinery at Gela, Italy.

Building on its long-standing relationship with the supermajor, Amec Foster Wheeler was hired by Eni as part of a major investment programme in Italy to convert its refineries from conventional' to green' bio-refineries, and will use our proven Hydrogen technology and our differentiated Terrace WallTM fired heater.
