Wison Engineering has won an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPC) contract for an ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol (EOEG) project in the Middle East.
According to the contract, Wison Engineering will be responsible for the expansion of the EOEG facilities and auxiliary units. The project is scheduled to be mechanically completed in 3Q17. The project kick-off meeting was recently held at the Shanghai headquarters of Wison Engineering.
EOEG is one of the mainstream technologies being used in glycol production globally, and is also an important process in the downstream ethylene industry. Wison is now providing EPC services for a 70 000 tpy oxalic acid and 10 000 tpy ethylene glycol project using a tail gas of yellow phosphorus from mining production as feedstock in Guizhou Province in China. The project adopts syngas to EG technology via oxalate, which is another mainstream technology in glycol production. The award of this EOEG contract will reinforce Wison's project execution capabilities in glycol facilities featuring different mainstream technologies, and further enhance the company's competitiveness in the global petrochemical industry.
Internationalisation is one of the key development strategies of Wison Engineering. At present, Wison has won a total of seven EPC contracts in the Middle East, among which three projects were successfully delivered. The company is also working on the largest oil refinery project that was awarded to Chinese companies in South America.
