Technology firm KBR says that it has been awarded a technology licensing contract by Hyundai Engineering and Técnicas Reunidas for PKN Orlen’s Petrochemical Development Program in Plock, Poland.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide technology license, basic engineering design, and proprietary equipment for its leading ethylene technology, Selective Cracking Optimum Recovery (SCORE), for PKN’s complex III project. This is Europe’s largest petrochemical project in 20 years.
“KBR is privileged to be selected as the ethylene technology licensor for this ambitious project and contribute to PKN Orlen’s growth and sustainability objectives,” said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology. “SCORE continues to lead the industry in delivering the highest yields and operational flexibility, while minimising the carbon footprint.”
KBR has been a leader in olefins technology development, plant design for over 50 years. It has licensed more than 100 grassroot ethylene plants utilising its cracking technologies to produce ethylene, propylene and other valuable byproducts from a variety of feedstocks.
