Jacobs wins feasibility study contract for Borealis chemical plant in Belgium
Jacobs Engineering Group has received a contract to complete a feasibility study for a propane dehydrogenation plant located at the existing Borealis production site in Kallo, Belgium. As part of the study, Jacobs is preparing a front-end-loading stage 2 conceptual design package for the outside battery limit areas of the plant and is complementing the process design package for the inside battery limit areas of the plant being prepared by Borealis' technology provider. The study is slated for completion by mid-2017. When complete, the new PDH will have a targeted annual production capacity of 740 kilotons per annum, making it one of the largest and most efficient facilities in the world.
