Wison Engineering has been awarded an EPC contract for a 300 000 tpy methanol-to-olefins (MTO) unit that will constitute the first phase of Connel Chemical Industry Ltd’s 600 000 tpy MTO plant. The two parties also signed a licensing and process design package (PDP) contract for Wison’s proprietary olefin separation technology, which is the tenth licensing of this technology.
The project will utilise an integrated solution that leverages UOP’s MTO+OCP (olefin cracking process) technology and Wison’s high recovery olefin separation technology. Wison Engineering will be responsible for the engineering, design, procurement and construction of the MTO reaction and concentration unit, the olefin separation unit, the olefin cracking unit and additional auxiliaries. The project is scheduled to be delivered in October 2017.
Wang Daxiang, General Manager of Connel Group said: “The 600 000 tpy MTO project is an important step for Connel Chemical’s industrial upgrading as well as a key link in Jilin City’s fine chemical supply chain. We are confident that Wison’s advanced, high recovery technology and rich experience in MTO project execution will ensure a successful outcome.”
Zhou Hongliang, Executive Senior Vice President said: “We are honored to help facilitate Connel’s business expansion and Jilin City’s industrial upgrading. In line with our strategy to drive business development with innovative technologies, Wison is creating great benefits for domestic project owners thanks to our proprietary olefin separation technology and UOP’s process. We have built up a robust EPC project track records, turning MTO into one of Wison’s great strengths. In the Connel project, we’ll deploy our first class team to ensure a successful delivery as we always do.”
Wison Engineering’s olefin separation technology has passed scientific and technological appraisal conducted by the China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation (CPCIF), meeting advanced international standards. Product recovery for ethylene and propylene products has also reached the top standard worldwide.
Connel is the largest aniline producer in the world. The 600 000 tpy MTO project will serve to boost the ethylene and propylene supply chain of the Jilin Economic & Technological Development Area as detailed in the ‘13th Five-Year Plan’, which is to be developed into a renowned fine chemical industry base in China.
