KBR Opens New Engineering Centre in Jakarta
KBR has opened its newest engineering centre in Jakarta forming part of KBR's Energy and Chemicals Division.
"KBR's Jakarta office is an important part of our international strategy. Indonesia's strategic location, competitive business environment and talented workforce were factors in selecting Jakarta as our preferred engineering center location," said Lou Pucher, senior vice president of KBR's Energy and Chemicals Division.
KBR has over 30 years of project execution experience in Indonesia in offshore oil and gas, liquefied natural gas and the petrochemical, fertilizer and refinery industries.
The Jakarta office draws on Indonesia's workforce, currently having over 60 employees, including engineers, designers and support staff. The local, multi-disciplined engineering team has several years of project experience across the oil and gas, and petrochemical industries.
The new engineering centre is IS0 9001:2000 certified. It is fully equipped with advanced engineering tools such as AutoCAD and fully automated 3D model design. The office is also linked to other KBR centers via high-speed data transfers and a common IT infrastructure.
KBR's Jakarta office is headed by Pete Wiggin, director, who has over 30 years of industry and project experience. Prior to his current appointment, he served as director of KBR's engineering center in Monterrey, Mexico.
