Infineum to build additive component manufacturing facility in Singapore

Infineum Singapore Pte. Ltd. announced the start of a major project for the construction of a grassroots salicylate manufacturing facility at its site at Jurong Island, Singapore. Calcium salicylate is a unique detergent component which is a critical part of Infineum’s highly-differentiated top-tier passenger car and heavy-duty oil formulations and its marine oil additive product slate. The new plant is an important addition to Infineum’s global supply capability of these additives. Initial project work will comprise the completion of front end engineering and design in early 2011. Infineum Singapore has appointed Foster Wheeler Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. to carry out the front end engineering and design. The construction phase is scheduled for 2012-13, with commissioning and start-up in the second half of 2013. The precise capacity and total investment in the plant were not disclosed. (July 2, 2010)
