China: Engineering Wison Engineering Constructs and Starts up 300 KTA MTO Plant
The project marks the first phase of Connell Chemical Industry's 600 KTA MTO complex in China. On successful start-up, the plant produced on-spec ethylene and propylene. It is the first large-size chemical project to be brought on-stream amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.
Shanghai/China – On April 20, 2020, the first phase of Connell Chemical Industry's 600 KTA MTO complex, a 300 KTA MTO plant, successfully started up and produced on-spec ethylene and propylene. This plant was built by Wison Engineering through an EPC contract.
This project is the first large-size chemical project brought on-stream during this period when the nation is in the process of restarting the economy while fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. The MTO plant started feed-in at 8:18 AM on April 15, produced on-spec propylene at 7:00 AM on April 18, and produced on-spec ethylene at 4:00 AM on April 20.
This plant is deployed with Honeywell UOP's advanced MTO/OCP reaction technologies and Wison Engineering's olefin recovery and separation technology – ‘Pre-cutting + Oil Absorption’ process. The project was built by Wison Engineering through an EPC contract. The integrated process with UOP's MTO/OCP technology and Wison Engineering's olefin recovery and separation technology is one of the most advanced MTO processes in the world, featured by advantages of high feedstock yield and low catalyst consumption.
