Zhejiang Petroleum & Chemical Co. Ltd., also known as Zhejiang Petrochemical Co. Ltd. (ZPC), has let a contract to a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corp., Tokyo, to provide equipment for the first 20 million-tonne/year phase of ZPC’s grassroots 40 million-tpy refining and chemical integrated complex in Zhoushan, Zhejiang Province, China (OGJ Online, Feb. 14, 2017).

As part of its scope of work for Phase 1 of the project, Yokogawa China Co. Ltd. will supply its proprietary 190 Yokogawa GC8000 process gas chromatographs, analyzers that separate and measure the density of the components in gases and volatile liquids, Yokogawa Electric said.

The service provider did not disclose a value of the order.

Phase 1 of ZPC’s complex—which also will produce 1.4 million tpy of ethylene—is due for startup by December, while Phase 2—which will nearly double processing and production capabilities at the site—is scheduled for commissioning during first-quarter 2021 (OGJ Online, May 11, 2017).

ZPC—a joint venture of China-based Rongsheng Holding Group Co. Ltd., Juhua Group Corp., Tongkun Group Co. Ltd., and Zhoushan Marine Comprehensive Development Investment Co. Ltd.—will invest about 160 billion yuan to complete both phases of the project, the company previously said (OGJ Online, June 5, 2017).
