The PE plant on order is to be constructed on a site adjacent to ExxonMobil's existing plant near Houston, Texas. Earlier MHI received an order to provide engineering design, land preparation work, etc. at the site. The latest contract covers engineering, procurement and construction (EPC).
The new contract includes two PE plant lines each having a production capacity of 650,000 tons per year, consisting of reaction equipment as well as finishing, packaging and shipping equipment. It also includes the construction of utility facilities for water, air and steam.
The Polyethylene plant project is an ExxonMobil expansion project to increase a capacity of its existing complex near Houston to produce the plastic polyethylene. The product will be a premium-grade polyethylene which can be used to make lighter and lower cost packaging products with smaller environmental footprints. The PE expansion project is part of a multibillion-dollar project of ExxonMobil. ExxonMobil estimates that the multibillion-dollar project including the PE expansion will create 10,000 area jobs during its construction and will create about $870 million of economic activity annually once it's up and running.
MHI has enjoyed a favorable relationship with ExxonMobil for some time. In addition to a robust track record in orders for large-scale compressor turbines for ExxonMobil's ethylene plants, in 2011 MHI completed a project to construct a large-scale PE plant (two lines), also with a total production capacity of 1.3 million tons per year, as part of a petrochemical complex ExxonMobil owns on Jurong Island in southwest Singapore.
To date MHI has received orders for a total of 13 PE plants. The latest contract was successfully concluded thanks not only to this track record but also to the client's high evaluation of MHI's capabilities in PE plant engineering.
