Technip to Supply Ethylene Furnaces to Kazanorgsintez

21.10.2016 -

French engineering contractor Technip has been awarded a contract by Kazanorgsintez, Russia’s largest PE producer and one of the country’s biggest chemical companies, to provide three furnaces for an ethylene plant in Kazan, Russia. The value of the contract was not disclosed. Under the deal, which continues the long-standing cooperation between the two companies, Technip will supply engineering and procurement services for the furnaces, which are based on its proprietary SMK technology.

This type of furnace is said to be particularly suitable for cracking high-capacity, low-cost ethane and propane feedstock. Technip’s operating center in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands, will execute the project, which is scheduled for mechanical completion in 2018. In both 2007 and 2015, the Paris-headquartered contractor supplied SMK double-cell cracking furnaces to Kazanorgsintez.
