Paralloy to provide vital components for Ras Laffan

Paralloy has started work on a major contract to provide vital components for one of the world’s biggest petrochemical projects.

It has designed and will produce nearly 400 radiant coils to be installed inside the seven steam cracking furnaces in the frame of the USD 6bn Ras Laffan Petrochemicals Project in Qatar.

The project is a joint venture between Chevron Phillips Chemical and QatarEnergy and will occupy a 435-acre site with a capacity of 2080 Kilo Tons per annum, making it the largest ethane cracker in the Middle East and one of the biggest in the world. Building work started in February and operations are due to start in 2026.

The Ras Laffen facility has been designed to maximise energy efficiency during both its construction and operation, and Paralloy is making a key contribution to the project’s environmental considerations as the coils will be cast in electrical induction furnaces which are powered by certified renewable energies.

Paralloy itself intends to be carbon neutral by 2035.
