CB&I bags Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group polypropylene facility contract in China

THE WOODLANDS, US: CB&I has been awarded a contract by Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group Co Ltd for the license and engineering design of a polypropylene unit to be built in Lingwu, Yinchuan City, Ningxia, People’s Republic of China. The unit will use CB&I’s Novolen technology to produce 600,000 metric tonne per annum of polypropylene. There are already two units utilizing Novolen technology on site – each with cascade and parallel production lines. At the completion of this third unit, the capacity on site will be increased to 1.6 million metric tonne and the plant will be able to produce the full range of polypropylene grades.

“Once the third polypropylene unit at Shenhua Ningxia’s site is running, it will be the largest polypropylene site in China. This site will also have the largest capacity of any of the Novolen technology licensees,” said Daniel McCarthy, President, Technology Operating Group, CB&I.
