This project is another step in Kazanorgsintez’ ongoing cracking furnaces replacement program and confirms the long-standing relationship between the two companies. In 2007 and 2015, Technip supplied SMK™ double-cell cracking furnaces to Kazanorgsintez with successful start-up and operation. This furnace type is particularly suitable for cracking high-capacity, low-cost ethane and propane gas feedstock.
Technip’s operating center in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands, will execute the project, which is scheduled for mechanical completion in 2018.
Stan Knez, President, Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology, commented:
“We value our long-standing relationship with Kazanorgsintez and their continued trust in Technip, the world’s largest ethylene licensor and contractor. Our SMK™ coil technology has been applied in more than 100 installations around the world and is recognized for giving clients reliable, flexible and highly selective solutions to improve operational efficiency.”
