China – Fluor has started the pre-front-end engineering and design (pre-Feed) and Feed for Invista’s new adiponitrile (ADN) manufacturing facility in China.

The manufacturing facility is anticipated to have an annual production capacity of approximately 400,000 tonnes of ADN, a chemical that is used to make nylon polymers, fibers and other specialty materials. It will be the first world-scale ADN facility constructed in more than 35 years.

Work is being led out of Fluor’s Shanghai office. Facility construction is expected to begin in 2020, with start-up expected to begin by 2022.

With offices in Shanghai and Beijing, the company has been active in China for more than 40 years. As part of a joint venture, the firm also owns, operates and maintains the Cooec-Fluor fabrication yard in Zhuhai, which is one of the largest fabrication yards in the world.
