Uhde Inventa-Fischer, a subsidiary of Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions AG will build a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plant for Sasa Polyester Sanayi A.Ş in Adana, Turkey. The contract was signed in July last year and came into effect in December. With a capacity of 1,050 metric tons per day, it will be one of the largest Pet plants for textile applications worldwide. The product is used for clothing, home textile or technical applications with direct melt feeding to four staple lines and one additional bi-component fiber line.
The design of the poly condensation plant will be based on Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s proven, energy-efficient 2R polyester technology that comprises the patented Espree and Discage reactors. This enables the production of a superior high-quality polyester polymer. A characteristic feature of the plant is that the polymer melt will be conveyed directly from the poly condensation plant to several downstream spinning lines where staple fibers will be produced.
Uhde Inventa-Fischer will handle the basic and detail engineering, provide technical services for erection, pre-commissioning and commissioning supervision and deliver proprietary equipment and key components for the plant. The plant will be completed by the end of 2018.
