Second Ultra-Low Energy plant for Henan Xinlianxin, China

March 12/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Stamicarbon, the innovation and license company of Maire Tecnimont Group and Henan Xinlianxin Chemicals Group Co. Ltd. in China, have signed licensing and equipment supply contracts for a second Ultra-Low Energy grass root urea plant, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The virtual signing event had all the spirit of a traditional ceremony, despite participants connecting from different countries via videoconferencing.

The first plant ever designed with Stamicarbonís innovative LAUNCH MELTô Ultra-Low Energy design, is also licensed to this customer and is currently in commissioning at the site of their subsidiary Jiujiang Xinlianxin Fertilizer Co. Ltd. in Jiangxi province. This new contract, was signed even before the scheduled start-up of the first plant in February. It represents the third licensing project in five years between Henan Xinlianxin Chemicals Group and Stamicarbon. It started with a revamping project signed in 2016, followed by the first Ultra-Low Energy grass root plant in 2017 and this latest contract for their second Ultra-Low Energy plant in the final days of 2020.

Stamicarbon will deliver the Process Design Package and the proprietary high pressure equipment in Safurexģ and associated services for both the urea melt plant and finishing by prilling. The urea plant with a Pool Reactor will have a capacity of 2334 mtpd and is expected to start up in 2023.

The urea melt plant will feature Stamicarbonís innovative Ultra-Low Energy design, allowing for heat to be used three times (instead of two), bringing energy savings currently unrivalled by any competitor. Thus, showing Stamicarbonís commitment towards innovation and technology development to realize sustainable fertilizer solutions. By significantly reducing both steam and cooling water consumption, the design also substantially reduces plant operating costs (OPEX). The Ultra-Low design is not only suitable for new plants, it can also be used as a powerful revamp tool for both CO2 stripping and conventional urea plants.

As per MRC, With effect from January 1, 2011, Stamicarbon, the licensing and IP Center of Maire Tecnimont S.p.A., acquired the Italian engineering company Noy Engineering from Tecnimont. With this acquisition the extensive licensing, innovation and customer service experience of Stamicarbon is combined with the polyester and polymerization technologies of Noy Engineering. Noy Engineering designs and builds plants worldwide, based on proprietary technologies. It has developed an extensive portfolio of Polymer technologies PA6.6 & PA6, PET and Acrylic. There are more than 100 plants already designed, constructed and in operation with Noy's technologies, which is equivalent to more than 1 million metric tons per year production installed worldwide.

As per MRC, Maire Tecnimont S.p.A. announced that its subsidiaries Tecnimont S.p.A. and KT - Kinetics Technology S.p.A. have signed with SOCARís subsidiary Heydar Aliyev Oil Refinery two Engineering, Procurement and Construction contracts, as part of the Modernization and Reconstruction of Heydar Aliyev Oil Refinery in Baku, Azerbaijan. SOCAR is the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic. The overall contractsí value equals to approximately USD 160 million.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 2,220,640 tonnes in 2020, up by 2% year on year. Only shipments of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) increased. At the same time, polypropylene (PP) shipments to the Russian market reached 1 240,000 tonnes in 2020 (calculated using the formula: production, minus exports, plus imports, exluding producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020).
