Wison Engineering bags Connel’s EPC contract

SHANGHAI, CHINA: Wison Engineering has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPC) contract for a 300kta methanol-to-olefins (MTO) unit that will constitute the first phase of Connel Chemical Industry Ltd (Connel)’s 600kta MTO plant. The two parties also signed a licensing and process design package (PDP) contract for Wison’s proprietary olefin separation technology, which is the tenth licensing of this technology.

The project will utilize an integrated solution that leverages UOP’s MTO+OCP (olefin cracking process) technology and Wison’s high recovery olefin separation technology. Wison Engineering will be responsible for the engineering, design, procurement and construction of the MTO reaction and concentration unit, the olefin separation unit, the olefin cracking unit and additional auxiliaries. The project is scheduled to be delivered in October, 2017.

Wison Engineering’s olefin separation technology has passed scientific and technological appraisal conducted by the China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation (CPCIF), meeting advanced international standards. Product recovery for ethylene and propylene products has also reached the top standard worldwide.

“The 600kta MTO project is an important step for Connel Chemical’s industrial upgrading as well as a key link in Jilin City’s fine chemical supply chain. We are confident that Wison’s advanced, high recovery technology and rich experience in MTO project execution will ensure a successful outcome,” said Wang Daxiang, general manager of Connel Group.

“In line with our strategy to drive business development with innovative technologies, Wison is creating great benefits for domestic project owners thanks to our proprietary olefin separation technology and UOP’s process. We have built up a robust EPC project track records, turning MTO into one of Wison’s great strengths. In the Connel project, we’ll deploy our first-class team to ensure a successful delivery as we always do,” added Zhou Hongliang, executive senior VP, Connel.
