Petrochemical

We act as a project partner in the chemical and petrochemical sector

As a contractor, we take on the responsibility for developing and implementing major petrochemical plant projects. We support our customers in every step from project development to the execution of the plant right down to the sale of the products. In doing so, we remain independent of specific technologies and products and apply only the best processes and components available at the time in question. We combine these with our own engineering, commercial handling and project management expertise.

One focal point in plant execution is methanol, a source material for the chemical industry and a high octane fuel. Methanol can be used to produce adhesives and resins for the construction industry, plastics (e.g. PET), paints and silicones.

These are intended for the production of ammonia, urea-ammonia nitrate and melamine. Melamine is a much more refined commodity than methanol and ammonia: The material is able to increase the real net output ratio in processing gas.

For ammonia plants, Ferrostaal cooperates with renowned and experienced engineering companies and process technology providers. For instance: Acting as general contractor Ferrostaal completed a 1,850 mtpd ammonia plant in Trinidad. KBR (Kellogg Brown & Root), licensor of the KBR Advanced Ammonia Process (KAAP), provided basic and detail engineering as well as commissioning and start-up services for both projects.

We assume full responsibility for on-time and quality fulfilment of our contractual duties. Effective risk and quality management is therefore of central importance to us.
