Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. was recently awarded a contract from Honeywell to provide engineering services for the expansion of its Baton Rouge, La., manufacturing facility. Jacobs will execute the work from its offices in Mount Laurel, N.J.
The expansion enables the Baton Rouge facility, which is one of the leading refrigerant suppliers in the United States, to produce Honeywell's new low-global-warming-potential (GWP) blowing agent and propellant (HFO-1234ze) on a commercial scale. Production of HFO-1234ze is scheduled to begin in late 2013.
"We are pleased Honeywell selected Jacobs to be part of this cutting-edge project, especially since the investment will use next-generation technology to improve the energy efficiency for a multitude of applications," stated Jacobs vice president Bob Pragada.
Jacobs is one of the world's largest and most diverse providers of technical, professional and construction services.
