The Linde Group and its consortium partner Samsung Engineering, Korea, have been awarded the contract to build a turnkey ethylene plant in Dahej, India. The plant has been commissioned by the Indian company OPAL, a subsidiary of the state-owned ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd). The contract is worth around 1.030 billion euro in total, of which Linde誷 share is 350 million euro. The plant will be the largest of its kind in India and one of the largest ethylene plants in the world. The very successful collaboration with Samsung Engineering from South Korea is now approaching its third decade and has generated business for the Linde Group in China, Thailand, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and now India. The plant is part of a new petrochemical complex being built in the Indian state of Gujarat and it will produce 1.1 million tons of ethylene, 400,000 tons of propylene, 150,000 tons of benzene and 115,000 tons of butadiene per annum. These products are used as source materials in the plastics industry. Linde is the consortium leader on this project, responsible for the steam cracker technology, the basic engineering and the supply of critical components. Samsung Engineering is responsible for the detail engineering, the supply of the remaining components, and the construction and assembly of the plant.
