Mc Dermott International has been awarded a technology contract for a grassroots alpha-methylstyrene recovery unit in Ningbo, China. The 10,000 MTA facility is expected to use the AMS technology to recover specialty chemicals for niche market sale.

Houston/USA – Mc Dermott International has recently announced that it has been awarded a sizeable* technology contract by Formosa Chemicals Industries Ningbo for the technology license and basic engineering services for a grassroots alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) recovery unit in Ningbo, China. This 10,000 MTA unit will utilise AMS technology jointly licensed by Versalis and Mc Dermott's Lummus Technology to recover specialty chemicals for niche market sale.

"This award represents the first license of this AMS technology," said Leon de Bruyn, Senior Vice President of Mc Dermott's Lummus Technology business. "The commercialisation of this technology illustrates the effectiveness of our continuous innovation process. Lummus works to provide our customers market-leading solutions to enhance their competitiveness; the addition of the AMS recovery unit will enable Formosa to recover this specialty chemical with unmatched purity, ultimately enhancing the operating margins while lessening the environmental footprint."

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

The award strengthens the ongoing collaboration, dating back to 1995, between the Formosa organisation and Lummus Technology. This technology incorporates many decades of operating and design experience by Versalis with Lummus design expertise.

This award was reflected in Mc Dermott's second quarter 2019 backlog.

*Mc Dermott defines a sizeable contract as between 1 million dollars and 50 million dollars.
