Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (JEC) has won a contract to provide Project Management Consulting (PMC) services for a new pipe rolling mill near Corpus Christi, Texas from Tianjin Pipe Corporation (TPCO), a global leader in the manufacture of seamless pipe.
Jacobs is expected to assist TPCO with the coordination and management of engineering, procurement, and construction for the mill thereby enhancing TPCO’s own internal capabilities and resources as well as those of its Chinese associate engineering company, Capital Engineering & Research Incorporation Limited (CERI). Engineering, procurement and construction of the new facility is expected to be a multinational endeavor, including professional services, materials and/or labor from, the United States, Europe and China.
The new manufacturing facility, located in Gregory, Texas near the Port of Corpus Christi, is scheduled to be delivered with phased completions between December 2012 and end of 2014. This project is TPCO’s first major mill in the United States.
