John Brown has announced it has been awarded a management contract by Shell Nederland Chemie for the company's planned 90 000 tonne/year propylene expansion at Pernis, the Netherlands (ECN 14 March). The engineering company will replace the existing propylene splitter with one which has a capacity of 230 000 tonne/year, and expand the capacity of the isopropyl alcohol plant at the site. Preparatory engineering is underway, especially for the procurement of long-lead equipment. Shell announced the project, which is aimed to switch production from refinery-grade to polymer-grade propylene, two months ago. John Brown's Zoetermeer office developed the project specifications in 1992. It is due onstream at the end of 1995.
