KEY DEVELOPMENTS OF THE MONTH:
At the steam cracker, deaerators for boiler feedwater treatment are ready for commissioning, and a low-pressure boiler supplying steam for general use and for the facility’s own needs was launched.
The polyethylene unit had the electric heating system for the priority low-pressure steam and circulating water subsystems fully assembled. The facility completed pre-commissioning of the low-pressure steam system to supply heat to substations and the extrusion facility.
The polypropylene unit saw the start of the flare assembly and the launch of cooling water and low-pressure steam systems for the main collector and the extrusion facility. Heating water, as well as low-pressure steam and condensate systems were fully pre-commissioned to ensure heat supply according to the design configuration.
As part of the off-site facility construction, heat from the boiler house was supplied to Administrative Building 1, the service building, chemicals storage facility, water treatment system, and the fire and process water unit.
Process air was supplied to all the key construction sites and process facilities.
