Mitsubishi gets Braskem Idesa’s ethylene facility contract
Compressors and steam turbine for ethylene plant.

TOKYO, JAPAN: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation (MCO), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd, has received an order from Braskem Idesa (joint venture of Braskem and Grupo Idesa) of Mexico for five compressors and three steam turbines to be used in a large-scale ethylene production facility which that company is to build locally. MCO has an abundant track record in the delivery of this type of equipment to mega ethylene plants having production capacities exceeding 1 million tonne per year.

The new ethylene production facility will be located within the Coatzacoalcos Petrochemical Complex along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. The equipment on order involves three compressor trains and two trains of ethylene and propylene refrigeration compressors, which use ethylene and propylene as refrigerant, respectively. Together the three trains consist of five compressors, three steam turbines to drive the compressors, and auxiliary devices including control systems and condensers. MCO is slated to deliver the compressors and turbines in the spring of 2013.
