Czech Republic based Unipetrol has awarded Technip a major contract to supply four cracking furnaces for their ethylene plant in Zaluzi, Czech Republic.

“The project covers the engineering, supply and construction of the furnaces, including the associated pipe-rack and these new furnaces will replace damaged units at the site,” said a Technip press release.

Two furnaces will be based on Technip's proprietary SMK coil technology and the two others on Technip's proprietary GK6 coil technology.

“During the last 10 years, SMK has been applied in more than 100 furnaces and GK6 in more than 76 furnaces,” the company added in the press release.

According to Technip, its SMK coils enable selectivity optimisation to obtain very large capacity furnaces with gas feeds and the largest capacity furnace in the world uses SMK technology.

While, the GK6 coils are designed for liquids cracking with high selectivity for new furnaces and for the modernisation of existing furnaces

The project will be executed by Technip's office in Zoetermeer, Netherlands, which is a 'Centre of Excellence' for ethylene technology.

Nello Uccelletti, president onshore/offshore said, "We are pleased that Unipetrol selected our furnace technology to help restore their ethylene plant into full operation.”

“Our priority is to deliver this project safely and in accordance with the agreed fast-track schedule and this project strengthens our relationship with Unipetrol, following our recent award for a polyethylene unit,” he too added.

Present in 48 countries, Technip has state-of-the-art industrial assets on all continents and operates a fleet of specialised vessels for pipeline installation and subsea construction. (AR)
