Ethylene expansion in Poland

ABB has won a USD 165 million contract from Poland’s PKN Orlen SA to expand an ethylene plant in Poland, a project that will substantially increase the country’s ethylene and propylene production. ABB will revamp the 21-year-old plant, based on previous ABB (Lummus) technology. The plant is located in Plock, approximately 100km from Warsaw. New technology will increase PKN’s ethylene production from 360,000 metric tons per annum (MTA) to 660,000 MTA and propylene production from 130,000 MTA to 315,000 MTA. PKN’s ethylene cracker is the largest ethylene plant in Poland.
