Jan 25, 2019 (Euclid Infotech Ltd via COMTEX) --

McDermott International, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a sizeable* technology contract by PT Chandra Asri Perkasa for the detailed engineering of 8 proprietary SRT (Short Residence Time) ethylene cracking heaters at the Chandra Asri Perkasa (CAP2) ethylene plant in Cilegon, Indonesia. The unit will utilize Lummus Technology's SRT (Short Residence Time) pyrolysis heater technology to produce 1,100 KTA of ethylene and 600 KTA of propylene.

"Lummus Technology's SRT heaters allow for higher yields and plant reliability while reducing emissions and operating costs," said Daniel M. McCarthy, Executive Vice President of McDermott's Lummus Technology business. "Once complete, this complex will be one of the largest in Indonesia, helping to satisfy the country's growing demand for petrochemical products."
