CB&I MEG-1 project achieves setting 350-ft wash tower

November 09/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- CB&Is LA MEG-1 project achieved a major construction milestone with the erection of a 350-ft wash tower, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

A PTC-200 ringer crane with a capacity of 3,200 mt was used to set the wash tower, which is one of the largest cranes in the world in terms of capacity and reach. Even more noteworthy, is that the tower was set two weeks ahead of schedule.

The MEG-1 project was awarded to CB&I in December 2015 by Lotte Chemical Louisiana L.L.C., a subsidiary of Lotte Chemical U.S.A. and Lotte Chemical headquartered in Seoul, Korea.

The wash tower is an integral part of converting ethylene oxide into ethylene glycol. The ethylene glycol produced will be used as a feedstock to produce polymers for the plastics and clothing industries.
