Wison Engineering Services Co. Ltd has announced that the ninth ethylene cracking furnace for Zhejiang Petrochemical’s Integrated Refining and Petrochemical Complex Project has been successfully shipped to the project site.
The core equipment of the naphtha cracking unit with the largest single-chain ethylene production capacity in China is now fully in place.
Wison adopted a module prefabrication assembly for the integrated delivery of the project based on project schedule and geographical site limitations. This is drastically different from the time-consuming methods adopted by previous projects which required separate transportation and on-site installation where the quality and safety could not be properly ensured.
Wison Engineering joined forces with Wison Offshore & Marine to execute the fabrication and shipment plans for nine modules. The project started in July 2017, delivered the first module shipment in March 2018, and completed the delivery of all nine modules by the October 2018.
Mr AN Wenxin, President and Chief Operating Officer of Wison Offshore & Marine Ltd, said: “Wison Offshore & Marine successfully delivered nine large complicated chemical modules with a total weight of about 33 000 t within 10 months, which greatly enhanced the confidence of domestic and foreign clients in Wison Offshore & Marine’s ability for timely delivery of high-complexity large-scale process modules with high quality within a short period. It will surely lay a solid foundation for Wison Offshore & Marine to undertake and deliver similar large-scale process modules.”
