The South Korean builder is in charge of design and equipment procurement.
DL E&C received an order from China National Chemical Engineering No. 7 Construction Company (CC7), the original contractor with BCC, to build a gas chemical plant in Russia.
Ust-Luga is one of Russia's major port cities, just 110 km southwest of St. Petersburg, and a large-scale investment is currently underway.
Yoo Jae-ho, head of DL E&C's plant business division, said:
- This project is very meaningful as it won a large-scale order in the Russian market, which has been considered a difficult barrier for Korean construction companies
- We will further strengthen our digital innovation and BIM-based design capabilities to firmly establish differentiated competitiveness in the Russian market, which is expected to expand in the future
The GCC will have a capacity of over 3 million tons of polymers per year – the largest output by a single facility worldwide.
- The 1st of them is the integrated complex for natural gas processing and liquefaction; the project operator is RusKhimAlyans, a JV of Gazprom and RusGazDobycha
- The 2nd one is the gas chemical complex technically affiliated with the GPC; the project operator is Baltic Chemical Complex, a subsidiary of RusGazDobycha
