Yokogawa China Co., a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric, is to supply the gas chromatographs for the first phase of a project to construct an integrated refinery and petrochemical production complex that is being undertaken by Zhejiang Petrochemical Co., Ltd. at a new industrial site in the Zhoushan archipelago.

This new, large-scale integrated refining and petrochemical complex will have an overall refining capacity of 40 million tonnes per year (tpy).

The facilities that are being built include a crude oil terminal, oil refining and petrochemical production process units, storage tanks, and transport and service installations.

The units constructed in the first phase will have the capacity to refine 20 million tpy of crude oil and produce 1.4 million tpy of ethylene. The first phase of the project is expected to be completed and online by the end of December 2018.

For the first phase of this project, Yokogawa China will supply 190 Yokogawa GC8000 process gas chromatographs. This is Yokogawa’s largest order to date for the GC8000, an analyser that separates and measures the density of the components in gases and volatile liquids.

Yokogawa now plans to expand the sale of its process analyser systems and further develop its process analyser systems integration business.

Zhejiang Petrochemical is mainly engaged in crude oil import and export, oil refining, petrochemical production, and the sales, storage, and transportation of its products.

It was established in June 2015 as a limited partnership between Rongsheng Petrochemical Co., Ltd., Juhua Group, Zhejiang Tongkun Holding Group Co., Ltd., and Zhoushan Ocean Comprehensive Development and Investment Co., Ltd.
