CB&I bags polypropylene facility contract in Ain Sokhna, Egypt

THE WOODLANDS, US: CB&I has been awarded a contract by Carbon Holdings for the license and engineering design of a polypropylene unit to be built in Ain Sokhna, Egypt. The unit will be aligned to the Tahrir petrochemical complex and use CB&I’s Novolen technology to produce 350,000 metric tonne per annum of polypropylene.

“This is an important milestone for Carbon Holdings and Egypt. This plant will become the first downstream development from our cornerstone Tahrir Petrochemicals project, which will create jobs by establishing converter plants to process polypropylene from our subsidiary Oriental Petrochemicals into goods required for the Egyptian economy. We are grateful for CB&I’s continued support for Carbon Holdings, and we hope to undertake further chemical derivative projects based on their technology in the future,” said Basil El-Baz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Carbon Holdings.
