Russian ethylene cracker picks Technip furnace technology
Feb '14
Technip awarded contract to supply proprietary furnace technology and services in Russia OJSC Kazanorgsintez renews its trust in Technip, the world’s largest ethylene licensor and contractor.
Technip was awarded by Open Joint Stock Company (OJSC) Kazanorgsintez(1) a contract to provide technology and services for a grassroots furnace at Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia. The project consists of the engineering and procurement of an SMK double-cell cracking furnace. This is preferred for cracking high-capacity, low-cost ethane and propane gas feedstock.
In the framework of the cracking furnaces replacement program of Kazanorgsintez, the project follows the successful start-up and operation of a Technip SMK double-cell cracking furnace supplied in 2007. The furnaces are part of the ethylene plant at the site, with the output used as feedstock for other downstream units.
Technip’s operating center in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands, will execute the project, which is scheduled for mechanical completion in 2015.
Stan Knez, Technip’s Senior Vice President, Process Technology, commented: “We are pleased that Kazanorgsintez has selected again Technip’s SMK coil technology for this new furnace. With more than 100 installations around the world, this technology is recognized for giving clients reliable, flexible and highly selective solutions to improve operational efficiency.”
Technip has widened its range of services and has reinforced its leadership in the downstream business since the acquisition of Stone & Webster process technologies in 2012.
