The contract, first in the Philippines for the Tecnimont, includes the implementation of a new High-Density Polyethylene unit (HDPE) and the upgrading of an existing Polypropylene unit (PP) in a joint venture with JGC Philippines. The project scope entails Engineering, Procurement and Construction activities up to Ready for Commissioning.
Once the project is completed, the new HDPE plant will have a capacity of 250,000 t/y of HDPE based on Chevron Phillips Chemical’s MarTECH™ technology, while the existing PP plant will expand to 300,000 t/y based on Grace’s UNIPOL® PP technology.
