LONDON (ICIS)--ThyssenKrupp Uhde has won a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for a single-train polypropylene (PP) plant for ZapSibNeftekhim, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Russian chemical major Sibur, the German petrochemicals engineering firm said on Tuesday.
The 500,000 tonne/year PP plant is planned to be constructed in Tobolsk, in the Tyumen region of west Siberia.
The contract was awarded in May 2012.
The PP plant is based on Netherlands-headquartered producer LyondellBasell's Spheripol process technology, which is the most widely used technology for the production of PP, ThyssenKrupp said.
Financial details of the contract were not disclosed.
