Technip has been awarded by Unipetrol a significant(1) lump sum 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. These new furnaces will replace damaged units at the site.
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 project will be executed by Technip’s office in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands, a center of excellence for ethylene technology.
