Downstream major Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic) has awarded the Saudi subsidiary of Chinese contractor Wison Engineering a $150m engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build its new utilities park and pilot plants project.

The park and plants project is part of the ongoing Sabic Technology Centre expansion plan in Jubail. Upon the expansion project’s completion, the integrated complex will be the biggest of Sabic’s 21 technology and innovation centres worldwide.

The project is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Wison has previously delivered seven EPC projects on schedule to Sabic since 2012.

Earlier this year, the Chinese contractor established its Middle East base in Saudi Arabia.
