Norton Engineering Wins Contract in China
Shandong Chambroad Petrochemicals Co., Ltd. has awarded a contract to Norton Engineering for the supply of its proprietary Venturi Scrubbing System (VSS) technology at its industrial complex in Boxing, Shandong Province, China. The contract is for technology, proprietary equipment, a complete Process Design package, and start-up support. Norton Engineering will design two systems for Chambroad at its FCC #2 and FCC #3 units. NEC will collaborate with Bohi Hoho Engineering and Technology on the project.
Norton’s state-of-the-art VSS technology removes sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter (PM) from off gases of Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) and other process units. In response to China’s five year plan to improve air quality and reduce emissions from its petrochemical industry, Chambroad plans to install the units by the end of 2014. Norton’s technology was chosen because of its low back-pressure capability, high degree of reliability, competitive capital and operating costs, and run time expectation.
