Burckhardt Compression to modernize third-party Hyper Compressor at MOL LDPE plant

May 19/2017
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Burckhardt Compression was selected to modernize MOL Petrochemicals' third-party Hyper
Compressor at its LDPE plant in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary, said Burckhardt Compression.

The goal was to improve production performance and to establish a comprehensive, long-term service capability
with a running-hours guarantee.

The Hyper Compressor at the low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant has been in operation at MOL Petrochemicals in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary, since 1991. Burckhardt Compression is well-known for its Hyper Compressors and the MOL Group already has positive experiences working with Burckhardt Compression at another LDPE site.

Thanks to the high level of trust in Burckhardt Compressions technology and its Hyper Compressor design and service capabilities, MOL decided to entrust Burckhardt Compression with this modernization project. Based on its many years of experience, Burckhardt Compression is capable of developing comprehensive solutions
that are compatible with the given framework of any third-party compressor.

The project scope includes the Burckhardt Hypropack cartridge system, plungers and central valves for two second-stage cylinders, which will be installed using special tools, all under the supervision of highly qualified reciprocating field service specialists. Burckhardt Compression will maintain a high level of service by deploying qualified service engineers and providing specific training for MOL Group both on-site and at its headquarters in Switzerland.

MOL Group, an integrated, international oil and gas company, has petrochemical plants in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary and Bratislava, Slovakia with combined annual production of 1.25 million tons. In line with its strategy MOL Group 2030, the company is diversifying away from motor fuels and expanding its petrochemicals portfolio with the aim of becoming a leading chemical company in Central and Eastern Europe. As a consequence, it plans to invest around USD 4.5 billion on growth projects by 2030, deepening its downstream integration throughout the value chain whilst
also moving towards semi-commodity and specialty products. MOL also commissioned a new butadiene plant last year, while a synthetic rubber plant (SSBR) - currently under construction - is scheduled to start operations in 2018.

Burckhardt Compression is a renowned original equipment manufacturer of high-pressure reciprocating Hyper Compressors for LDPE plants with a discharge pressure of up to 3,500 bar (50,000 psi). An outstanding track record with decades of experience in building Hyper Compressors makes Burckhardt Compression a competent and reliable partner for modernization projects and a trusted provider of global, one-stop maintenance and service solutions for
compressors of any brand.
