Cyclics Selects EDL as Construction Firm for German Plant

01 March 2004

The Cyclics Corporation has selected EDL Anlagenbau Gesellschaft mbH as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for their plant being built in Schwarzheide, Germany.

EDL’s office in Leipzig, Germany is near the Schwarzheide site. A team from Davy Process Technology, Cyclics’ design engineering contractor, has co-located to the EDL offices. The Cyclics resin plant is being constructed on the large BASF manufacturing complex outside of Dresden. The plant is expected to be complete by the end of 2004 and will have an initial annual capacity of 5.5 million pounds (2500 metric tons) with plans to double that in 2006. Beyond utilizing the infrastructure of BASF, Cyclics will benefit from having its key feedstock, PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) resin, produced by BASF on site. Production from the Cyclics plant will support the anticipated global market for their CBT resin.

“EDL was selected because of their extensive project experience obtained while working in the eastern regions of Germany, and the strong project management skills of Matthias Haring,” said Dr. Gary Faler, Chief Technology Officer for Cyclics. “We are confident that EDL will deliver the project on schedule and within budget.” Cyclics has already completed the conceptual design to increase the plant’s capacity in 2006 and will begin the basic engineering by the end of February.

“The Cyclics plant is a great opportunity for us,” remarked EDL’s project manager Matthias Haring. “We bring together expertise from Cyclics, Davy Process Technology, EDL, and from local contractors to the benefit of the project. From the very beginning the relationships between all involved parties reflect a sincere desire to work together in a collaborative partnership. Cyclics’ decision to select EDL, as the EPC Contractor, means another step in the successful development of EDL. We are proud to be Cyclics’ partner in this demanding project. “
