MOSCOW (MRC) -- thyssenkrupp Uhde has won an order from Nippon Coke & Engineering Co., Ltd. (NCE) to build and supply a new low-emission, top-charge coke oven battery in Japan, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.
The new battery will be installed at the Kitakyushu works as a replacement for the existing battery 2A. The design will include thyssenkrupp Uhde’s proprietary EnviBAT system to reduce emissions during the coking process.
“With this state-of-the-art, low-emission plant, NCE and thyssenkrupp Uhde are delivering an important contribution to making the Japanese coke plant industry more environmentally friendly,” says Michael Petzinna, Executive Director of the Coke Plant & Inorganic Acids operating unit. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration and are proud to be contributing our decades of plant engineering and process know-how to the project."
The project is part of the modernization of NCE’s coke plants, which involves four coke oven batteries built in the 1970’s being shut down and replaced by new, state-of-the-art, low-emission systems.
Worth an amount in the double-digit million-euro range, the contract includes the provision of the technology and engineering, equipment procurement, supervision of construction and commissioning of the new plant.
“In thyssenkrupp we have selected a reliable partner for the EP pad-up project. The company combines extensive plant engineering experience with efficient technologies that meet and exceed the most exacting environmental standards,” said Mr. Hiroaki Matsuoka, Representative Director & President of Nippon Coke & Engineering at the contract signing.
We remind, thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions’ subsidiary Uhde Inventa-Fischer signed a contract to build a new world-scale polymer plant for Yurek Polimer A.S.in Bursa, Turkey. The plant is planned to produce 300 metric tons per day (108,000 tons per year) of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) for low viscosity applications. The PET melt produced by thyssenkrupp technology will then be converted into PET Chips, as well as pre-oriented yarn.
