HOUSTON, US: McDermott International Inc has been awarded a sizeable technology contract by Ningbo Union King Polyester Material Limited the technology license, process design engineering, and operator training services for a large-scale, grassroots 1,600 KTA paraxylene (pX) plant at Ningbo Union King's petrochemicals facility in Ningbo, China.

Lummus Technology is the exclusive licensor of BP's pX technology, which offers pX production at purities of 99.8 percent with lower energy consumption and lower capital costs compared to more traditional pX technologies.

"Paraxylene is a critical component in various polymers such as polyester and thus an important piece of the worldwide petrochemicals market. This large-scale pX plant will help meet growing petrochemicals demand, particularly in China," said Leon de Bruyn, Senior Vice President of McDermott's Lummus Technology business.
