Baltic Chemical Plant selects Univation UNIPOL PE technology

December 13/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Baltic Chemical Plant LLC (BCP), a wholly-owned subsidiary of RusGasDobycha, has selected Univation Technologiesí UNIPOL PE Process for six reactor lines to be located at the Ust-Luga marine port located in Leningradsky Region, Russia, according to Kemicalinfo.

With maximum product flexibility in mind, each UNIPOL PE Reactor line is designed for a world-scale capacity of 500,000 TPY, yielding a total design capacity of 3,000,000 TPY.
BCP will access Univationís most advanced product technology platforms including ACCLAIM Technology for unimodal HDPE, PRODIGY Technology for bimodal HDPE grades, and XCAT Technology for advanced metallocene LLDPE. These technologies enable BCP with capabilities to serve a wide range of HDPE and LLDPE applications including LLDPE for blown and stretch film, MDPE for rotomolding, and HDPE for pipe, injection and blow molding products.

Additionally, BCP elected to incorporate Univationís latest process control system, PREMIER APC+ 3.0, across all production lines. APC+ 3.0 delivers state-of-the-art process control capability designed to maximize production rates, facilitate product transitions and enhance overall economic performance of the UNIPOL PE Process.
Mr. Konstantin Makhov, General Director of Baltic Chemical Plant LLC, added his comments, "We know that we can depend on Univation to deliver the technology, the know-how, and the experience required to achieve the necessary safety, technical, and economic objectives for this substantial new capacity build project. We will be working closely with the Univation teams on all aspects of this truly world-scale project as we expectantly look ahead to delivering this new significant source of PE resins supply to the marketplace."

We remind that, as MRC wrote before, in May 2019, Hyundai Chemical Co. selected Univation Technologies' Unipol PE technology for a new high-density polyethylene (HDPE) facility to be built in South Korea. The 300,000-t/y HDPE plant, which will be located at Hyundai's site in Daesan, will utilize Univation's broad range of HDPE product technology portfolio, including the Acclaim K-100 Catalyst series for advanced HDPE products.  An expected completion date for the project was not given.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,724,670 tonnes in the first ten months of 2019, up by 7% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased.
