This was in addition to an earlier contract from Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group, the technology provider said in a statement, adding that the value of the two contracts was more than €100m ($131.4m).
The project, which would produce around 500,000 tonnes/year of polypropylene (PP) from coal, is due to go on stream in late 2008, it said.
ICIS news previously reported that Datang Power will build a coal-to-olefins (CTO) project at Chifeng, Inner Mongolia province.
The project will produce 460,000 tonnes/year of propylene, 120,000 tonnes/year of gasoline and 45,000 tonnes/year of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
Datang has also selected Dow Chemical’s polypropylene (PP) technology for a planned 453,700 tonnes/year plant downstream of the MTP unit.
