Chevron Phillips Chemical has granted MHI Compressor International Corpration (MCO-I) a contract to deliver compressor train equipment to its new propylene unit at its Cedar Bayou plant in Baytown, Texas

The contract scope encompasses the supply of an API 612 steam turbine driving an API 617 heat pump compressor and all associated compressor train auxiliary equipment for Chevron Phillips Chemical’s 1 billion lbs./yr C3 splitter unit. The asset will convert a refinery grade mixture of propylene and propane into a high purity propylene product, MCO-I said.

MCO-I’s compressor train manufacturing, assembly, testing and packaging will be performed by its Hiroshima, Japan, and Pearland, Texas, facilities.

Michael McCurry, account executive, MCO-I, said, “The trust we earn from our customers is a result of delivering valuable solutions time and time again. MCO-I has a strong relationship with Chevron Phillips, having supplied many compressor trains to them over the past several years, followed up with superior service after equipment installation. This latest order further establishes MCO-I as a premier supplier for delivering state-of-the-art compression systems that help safeguard petrochemical plant reliability and availability.”

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor International Corporation (MCO-I) was established in the United States in September 2012 as a group company of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI). Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation (MCO), a wholly owned subsidiary of MHI in Hiroshima, Japan, holds a 70% stake with Mitsubishi Corporation (Americas) as a 30% joint venture partner.
