ABB Awarded Automation Contract For Philippines’ Petrochemical Expansion Project

ABB has won an order from JG Summit Petrochemical Corporation, a subsidiary of JG Summit Holdings, Inc., to supply electrical and process power management systems for its petrochemical expansion project. The project will increase the cracker production of ethylene by 50% to 480,000 tpa and propylene by 26% to 240,000 tpa. The new bimodal polyethylene plant will reach a capacity of 250,000 tpa and the capacity of the existing polypropylene plant will be upgraded to 300,000 tpa from current 190,000 tpa. ABB will design, engineer, manufacture, and supply a complete plant electrification system for the proposed expansion. The scope of supply includes 69kV high voltage air-insulated switchgear, UniGear medium-voltage switchgear, MNS low-voltage switchgear, power and distribution transformers, a capacitor bank, soft starter, IS-limiters, and a process power management system. Reports from hydrocarbonprocessing confirm that this software-based solution seamlessly integrates with ABB AbilityTM 800xA process and electrical control systems to ensure a reliable and stable electricity supply.
