The required compressor is for high pressure nitrogen gas service for Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) production system based on the production process by LyondellBasell in Netherlands. KAJI has been highly evaluated for engineering, delivery record and quality of compressor, and successfully ordered as a result of competition with European companies.
Since SINOPEC is planning construction of more large plants, KAJI will strengthen sales activities to them, and will further endeavor to expand business on refinery and petrochemical plant construction projects in the world.
