Linde/Samsung Engineering to build ethylene plant in India

By Gerald Ondrey |

The technology group The Linde Group (Munich, Germany; www.linde.com) and its consortium partner Samsung Engineering Co. (Korea: www.samsungengineering.co.kr) have been awarded the contract to build a turnkey ethylene plant in Dahej, India. The plant has been commissioned by the Indian company OPAL, a subsidiary of the state-owned ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd). The contract is worth around 1.030 billion euros in total, of which Linde’s share is 350 million euro. The plant will be the largest of its kind in India and one of the largest ethylene plants in the world. The plant is part of a new petrochemical complex being built in the Indian state of Gujarat and it will produce 1.1 million tons of ethylene, 400,000 ton/yr of propylene, 150,000 ton/yr of benzene and 115,000 ton/yr of butadiene. These products are used as source materials in the plastics industry. Linde is the consortium leader on this project, responsible for the steam cracker technology, the basic engineering and the supply of critical components. Samsung Engineering is responsible for the detail engineering, the supply of the remaining components, and the construction and assembly of the plant.
