Facilities for biotechnology park

Foster Wheeler AG has announced that a subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded a project management consultancy contract for the central utility facilities associated with a new biotechnology park in Nusajaya, Wilayah Iskandar, Malaysia.
The contract was awarded by Malaysian Bio-XCell Sdn Bhd, a joint venture company between Malaysian Biotechnology Corp. Sdn Bhd and UEM Land Holdings Bhd, which company owns and is developing the new park. The new 150-acre park features green initiatives such as natural lighting, passive cooling, solar energy and rainwater harvesting and will include a central hub consisting of offices, laboratories, canteen, 22 standard building shells, and larger land plots for custom-built facilities. All facilities will be supplied with chilled water and steam from a central utility facility (CUF) which will also treat all wastewater.
Planned to be built in phases, the initial CUF design includes a 30tn package boiler and a 40tn biomass boiler which will use palm waste as its fuel. The chilled water will be produced by three 3750KW chillers. The CUF is being designed to accommodate two more 40tn biomass boilers and four more 3750KW chillers in the future. In addition to assisting with contractor selection for the detailed design and construction of the CUF, Foster Wheeler will review and monitor the design, construction and commissioning of the CUF, which is scheduled for completion during the second quarter of 2012.
