October 6, 2022 | By Mary Bailey

Technip Energies (Paris) has been awarded a major contract to supply proprietary equipment for INEOS Olefins Belgium NV’s 1,450,000 tpa ethane cracker in Antwerp, Belgium. This latest award is part of the company’s early engagement strategy and builds on the success of the Ethylene License and Extended Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) previously awarded to Technip Energies by INEOS.

The cracker is designed using the latest technological advances from Technip Energies to achieve a reduction in CO2 footprint less than 50% of the top 10% of European crackers. The furnaces are modular and designed to run on high hydrogen fuel and upgrade to 100% hydrogen combustion in the future, in addition to the carbon capture ready plant. The plant design maximizes the use of modularization, utilizing Technip Energies extensive experience in modularized LNG projects.

Bhaskar Patel, SVP Sustainable Fuels, Chemicals and Circularity, Technip Energies, said: “We are very pleased that INEOS has chosen our low carbon ethane cracking technology and equipment for this large-scale project. Using our extensive modular design experience will result in a smaller site assembly footprint with durable features to reduce emissions.
