is now a leading producer in the world for polyester staple fibers, filament yarns, polyester-based and specialty polymers and intermediates.
are to secure the feedstocks for the existing yet expanding PET operations (PTA and MEG currently being imported) and then to extend its production to new petrochemical products.
production plants in a cyclic market, tight competition, and complex environmental and regulatory contexts requires upfront and meticulous evaluations of the feasibility.
› In order to successfully perform such a substantial Master Plan Scope, Axens Horizon relied on a comprehensive and incremental methodology in the frame of local and international partnership
› Based on a 10-year project execution plan and 3 investment stages:
› Focus was brought to the first stage of investment which involved a 1,500 KTA PTA plant and a 700 KTA MEG plant and their associated auxiliaries and offsite plants. Detailed cost estimation, project execution and financial calculations were reprised in coordination with the selected licensors.
Axens Horizon leadership in this Master Plan study enabled SASA to obtain not only the overall picture of the envisaged investment plan but also the detailed results and necessary information for the first and immediate investment phase in less than a year.
In the course of the study, the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments were launched and new finalized. The leveled and consolidated capital requirement of the first phase of the project is now in the hand of financial institutions and advisory firms. The first PTA and MEG plants are planned to be in operation by 2023.
