Thyssenkrupp to build two polymer plants for SASA in Turkey


Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions’ subsidiary Uhde Inventa-Fischer has signed a contract to build two new world-scale polymer plants for SASA Polyester Sanayi AS in Adana, Turkey.
One plant is planned to produce 1,050 metric tons per day (380,000 tonnes per year) of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) for low-viscosity applications. The second plant will use Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s proprietary patented MTR technology to produce 216,000 tons per year of resin for the production of PET bottles. Both new plants are among the largest single-line production plants for their respective products.
The scope of delivery for both projects will include basic and detail engineering, the delivery of all necessary components, and technical services for erection, pre-commissioning and commissioning supervision.
“We are very proud that SASA chose us to build another two state-of-the-art PET plants after we were already contracted to build one of the largest polyester lines last year. Our commercially tried-and-tested MTR process provides our customers with optimized energy consumption, maximum utilization of feedstocks and effective plant operation, thus significantly reducing the total conversion cost compared with conventional technologies,” said Werner Steinauer, CEO of Uhde Inventa-Fischer.
