Zachry Group and MHIA selected by Gulf Coast Growth Ventures to construct PE unit in Texas

By Chemical Engineering |

As announced earlier, Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV; www.gulfcoastgv.com), a joint venture of ExxonMobil and Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) will be constructing a new chemical complex in Texas. Zachry Group and its partner Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Inc. (MHIA) have been selected to construct a two-train polyethylene unit that will be part of  that chemical complex near Corpus Christi.  Upon completion, the complex will include a 1.8 million ton/yr ethane steam cracker, a 1.1 million ton/yr monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit, and the polyethylene unit that will be built by Zachry Group.

“We are pleased to be selected by GCGV to contribute our expertise to the project,” said Ralph Biediger, Projects Group president, Zachry Group. “The award represents not only our ability to execute a project of this scale on schedule and on budget, but also that we are aligned with GCGV in our commitment to keep each person safe while doing so.”

Zachry Group plans to begin major construction activities in Gregory, Texas, later this year, and the polyethylene unit is expected to be completed by 2022.
