Compressor trains for olefin plant
Because of its extensive compressor train expertise with large olefin plants, Siemens was selected to supply various compressor trains for an ethylene plant in the Persian Gulf with an annual production capacity of 1,100,000 tons of ethylene. Scope of Siemens delivery:
Methanol-to-Propylene, Datang International Power Generation Co. Ltd., China
The world's first methanol-to-propylene-plant 400 km north of Bejing was equipped by Siemens. The plant has a planned capacity of 470,000 tonnes per year. The main derivate of propylene, polypropylene, has a projected consumption growth of five per cent per year. In the past, propylene has mainly been produced from crude oil, but in a recently developed methanol-to-propylene process, natural gas or coal can be used to generate methanol in the first step. In a second step, the methanol is converted to propylene. Siemens scope of supply:
