Borealis selects Jacobs for polypropylene expansion feasability study
Jacobs Engineering Group has been awarded a contract to complete a feasibility study for the expansion of Borealis' polypropylene plants in Belgium. The study was awarded under the terms of the existing framework agreement with Borealis. The potential capacity increase of the polypropylene plants would take full advantage of the additional propylene supply from a planned propane dehydrogenation installation at the existing Borealis production site in Kallo, Belgium. Jacobs was recently awarded a contract to complete a front end engineering design study for this contemplated world-class PDH plant, which has a targeted annual production capacity of 740 kilotons.
