Zachry Group and its partner Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America Inc. have been selected to construct a two-train polyethylene unit that will be part of a new chemical complex near Corpus Christi, Texas, US.
The complex is planned by Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV), a joint venture of ExxonMobil and Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC).
Upon completion, the complex will include a 1.8 million tpy ethane steam cracker, a 1.1 million tpy monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit, and the polyethylene unit that will be built by Zachry Group.
“We are pleased to be selected by GCGV to contribute our expertise to the project,” said Ralph Biediger, Projects Group president, Zachry Group. “The award represents not only our ability to execute a project of this scale on schedule and on budget, but also that we are aligned with GCGV in our commitment to keep each person safe while doing so.”
Zachry Group plans to begin major construction activities in Gregory, Texas, later this year, and the polyethylene unit is expected to be completed by 2022.
