MHI Completes Construction of Two-Train Polyethylene Plant in Texas, US

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America (MHIA) has completed the construction of a two-train polyethylene facility in the US for ExxonMobil Chemical.

MHIA, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), secured the construction order from ExxonMobil Chemical in 2014.

Located near an existing plant operated by ExxonMobil in Mont Belvieu, Texas, the new facility is capable of producing 1.3 million tons of polyethylene per year.

It will  carry out reaction processing, final finishing, packaging, and shipment..

MHI senior vice president Yoichiro Ban said: “The construction process of the new plant is testament to the high level of project management provided by MHI Group.”

MHI Group is also building a polyethylene facility  in the petrochemical complex of ExxonMobil in Beaumont,Texas. It is the third polyethylene plant project carried out by MHI Group for ExxonMobil.

The first polyethylene plant was constructed in 2011 at the Singapore complex of ExxonMobil.

MHIA shifted its headquarters from New York to Houston due to the rise in demand for chemical plants.

MHI has also set up a specialized oil & gas division within MHIA in January 2017 todevelop chemical plants for the North American market.

MHI is a Japanese multinational engineering, electrical equipment, and electronics company headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, and has a workforce of over 10000.

Last month, Primetals Technologies, the joint venture of MHI and Siemens, has secured a contract to provide dynamic width control technology to Baoshan Iron and Steel Group.
