Braskem picks GE compressor technology in Mexico ethylene, PE venture

April 25/2012

(hydrocarbonprocessing) -- The Veracruz ethylene and polyethylene (PE) complex in Mexico, a joint venture between Brazilís Braskem and Mexicoís Grupo Idesa, will use hyper compressor and booster compressor technologies from GE. The GE technologies will be key elements of the low-density polyethylene (LPDE) plant.

The Veracruz ethylene and polyethylene (PE) complex in Mexico, a joint venture between Brazilís Braskem and Mexicoís Grupo Idesa, will use hyper compressor and booster compressor technologies from GE, project officials said on Monday. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The GE technologies are key elements of the low-density polyethylene (LPDE) plant, officials said. The compressors feature innovative technologies that use less electricity, reduce operating costs and require less maintenance, making the local plant more competitive with imported plastics, GE said.

GEís LDPE compressors feature a scalable design that enables upgrade and capacity additions with little effect on day-to-day operations and that requires very few adjustments, the company said.
