GUANGZHOU (ICIS)--China’s Fuzhou Yaolong Chemical plans to invest yuan (CNY) 4bn ($619m) to build a 200,000 tonne/year caprolactam (capro) plant at Fujian Jiangyin Economic Development Zone in Fuzhou, Fujian province, a company source said on Wednesday.

China National Chemical Engineering Co (CNCEC) will be contracted to do the engineering, procurement and construction work for the plant, according to the source.

A timeframe has not been set yet as the construction plans for the capro plant are at the preliminary stage, the source added.

Fuzhou Yaolong Chemical runs a 90,000 tonne/year synthetic ammonia plant, a 200,000 tonne/year soda ash plant and a 300,000 tonne/year fertilizer plant at the city area of Fuzhou, she said.

The company is relocating to the Fujian Jiangyin Economic Development Zone to avoid polluting the city and is building a 200,000 tonne/year synthetic ammonia plant and a 400,000 tonne/year soda ash plant at the new site.

The company plans to finish its relocation by June 2012, she added.
