"Shaw has a long track record of executing industrial projects in Turkey," said Lou Pucher, president of Shaw's Energy & Chemicals Group. "Forty years ago we provided our proprietary technology and engineering for the first ethylene plant in Yar mca, and since that time, we have completed more than 50 projects for the petrochemical, power and refining industries in Turkey."
The undisclosed value of the contract was included in Shaw's Energy & Chemicals segment's backlog of unfilled orders in the third quarter of fiscal year 2010.
