OSLO, NORWAY – 8 June 2021

Sustainable biochemicals company Circa Group AS (Euronext Growth Oslo: CIRCA) has engaged Technip Energies, a leading Engineering & Technology contractor, to conduct pre-EPC phase engineering work as the next step in the execution stage of the Resolute project.

The contract with Technip Energies deliberately overlaps the basic engineering design stage currently managed by Wood Consulting and has the main objectives of:

  • maintaining the project schedule as the project starts early stage engineering
  • construction activities on site, specifically those of site preparation, and readiness of buildings. It also allows for a head start of detail engineering and ordering of long lead items (LLis).

Dr Ebbe Dommisse, Circa Chief Operations Officer commented, “The agreement with Technip Energies is another major milestone in the construction of the Resolute plant. With the ongoing concerns over the impact of Covid-19, the contract specifically has been designed to bring forward a number of activities that will deliver potential time savings should the virus impact the project in the future.”

Pierre Pettex, Commercial Director, Sustainable Chemistry & Biofuels, Technip Energies stated, “Technip Energies is pleased and proud to have been chosen by Circa for this stage of the Resolute project. Technip Energies has the skills and resources to immediately engage on the project and we look forward to delivering a successful outcome for Circa.”
