USA: Engineering Work on Invista’s ADN Retrofit Project Continues on Schedule
Invista expects all pre-turnaround construction of its US-based adiponitrile retrofit project to be completed this year so that it can carry out the final checks and complete the project by 2021.
USA – Construction on the adiponitrile (ADN) retrofit project at Invista’s site in Victoria, Texas, continues on schedule with one of the modified process areas nearing completion. The company anticipates that all pre-turnaround construction will be completed later this year, and the final tie-ins are to be installed during a regularly scheduled maintenance outage in early 2021 with additional ADN coming online at that time.
ADN is a key ingredient for nylon 6,6 fibers and plastics used in industries like automotive production, electronics and electrical connectors. Applications also include automotive airbag fiber, specialty apparel fibers and high-performance coatings.
The construction team, following Covid-19 guidelines from the CDC and local authorities, is employing innovative ways to help maintain the health and safety of the project workforce during the pandemic.
