Thyssenkrupp Uhde to build new world-scale PET plant in Turkey

April 26/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions subsidiary Uhde Inventa-Fischer signed a contract to build a new world-scale polymer plant for Yurek Polimer Bursa, Turkey, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The plant is planned to produce 300 metric tons per day (108,000 tons per year) of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) for low viscosity applications. The PET melt produced by thyssenkrupp technology will then be converted into PET Chips, as well as pre-oriented yarn.

Alim Yurek, Member of Board of Directors of Yurek Polimer A.S. said: We chose a well-proven technology which could be seamlessly integrated into the further production. With this PET investment, the Yurek group will become an integrated textile group.

Scope of delivery will be basic and detail engineering, the delivery of all necessary components as well as technical services regarding Supervision for Erection, Pre-Commissioning and Commissioning.

As MRC reported previously, in July 2020, German machine engineering company Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions said it had won an order from Turkish packaging producer Koksan Pet Packaging Ind Co to build a PET plant in Gaziantep, in the southeast of the country. The plant will be built next to an existing production site built by Thyssenkrupp back in 2013. The two facilities are expected to have a production capacity of 432,000 tonnes of PET resin per year. The plant will use the Melt-To-Resin (MTR) process patented by Thyssenkrupp's subsidiary Uhde Inventa Fischer to produce various grades of resin. Completion and commissioning are planned for 2022.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estmated PET consumption increased to about 57,760 tonnes in February 2021, up by 7% year on year. Overall PET consumption in Russia totalled 115,210 tonnes in the first two months of 2021.
