Remscheid, February 5, 2010 –The first Oerlikon Barmag poly-condensation system commenced production in India last autumn. The plant – with a nominal annual capacity of 100,000 tons – currently produces 150 tons of POY a day as well as 150 tons of polyester chips a day.
In addition to engineering and equipment supply, the project’s scope of delivery also comprised the assembly and commissioning monitoring both for the poly-condensation system and the downstream polyester POY spinning system.
Remarkable is that the erection and commissioning of the plant has been realized in a record period of six and half months. The guaranteed performance figures were achieved within the shortest possible time following commissioning, hence confirming the Oerlikon Barmag concept; as a total solutions provider, the technology leader also masters all aspects of extensive projects and looks after the plant from the PTA (purified terephthalic acid) system all the way through to the DTY package.
