Technip announces PJSC Kazanorgsintez has been awarded a contract to supply furnaces to its ethylene plant in Russia.
Technip announced it has been awarded, by Public Joint Stock Company (PJSC) Kazanorgsintez, a contract to provide engineering and procurement of three proprietary SMKTM grassroots furnaces at Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia. The furnaces will be part of the ethylene plant at the site.
This project is another step in Kazanorgsintez’ ongoing cracking furnaces replacement programme and confirms the long standing relationship between the two companies. In 2007 and 2015, Technip supplied SMKTM double cell cracking furnaces to Kazanorgsintez with successful startup and operation. This furnace type is particularly suitable for cracking high capacity, low cost ethane and propane gas feedstock.
Technip’s operating centre in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands, will execute the project, which is scheduled for mechanical completion in 2018.
Stan Knez, President, Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology, commented, “We value our long-standing relationship with Kazanorgsintez and their continued trust in Technip, the world’s largest ethylene licensor and contractor. Our SMKTM coil technology has been applied in more than 100 installations around the world and is recognised for giving clients reliable, flexible and highly selective solutions to improve operational efficiency.”
