Chinese air separation unit (ASU) manufacturer Hangzhou Hangyang Group has signed a contract for three sets of 100,000 Nm3/h ASUs with Shenhua Yulin Energy and Petrochemicals Limited and Shenhua Resources Group Company.

The three sets of ASU are for supplying gases to the first phase of the Shenhua Yulin Recycle Economic Comprehensive Use of Coal (CTC) project, which will include 1.8 million tonnes per year (tpy) of methanol and 400,000 tpy of glycol.

The contract includes the design, supply and services of the equipment.
