McDermott wins technology contract for Ningbo Union PX Unit in China

June 20/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Ningbo Union King Polyester Material Ltd. has awarded a technology contract to McDermott International for a new grassroots paraxylene (PX) plant at Ningbo Union's petrochemicals facility in Ningbo, China, according to Apic-online.

The contract, valued at between USD1-million and USD50-million, involves the technology license, process design engineering and operator training services for a 1.6-million-t/y PX facility. 

A schedule for the project was not given.

The PX plant will utilize BP's PX technology, for which McDermott's Lummus Technology is the exclusive licensor.  The technology "offers PX production at purities of 99.8%, with lower energy consumption and lower capital costs compared to more traditional PX technologies," McDermott noted.

As MRC reported earlier, in May 2019, McDermott International, Inc. was awarded a sizeable technology contract by MOL Petrochemicals for the basic engineering, technology license, catalyst and Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for an Olefins Conversion Technology (OCT) unit at MOLs petrochemicals complex in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary. Once complete, this unit will have a production capacity of 100,000 MTA of polymer grade propylene from steam cracker and refinery feedstocks, utilizing Lummus proprietary OCT, and CDHydro Deisobutenizer. The unit will also produce an isobutene-rich stream.
