Coperion receives order from Total

Compounding plant on lump sum turnkey basis

Total, a leading energy player on the international stage, entrusted us in June 2014 with the realization of a compounding plant in France, on lump sum turnkey basis. The plant will produce PP-compounds for diverse applications with a yearly production rate of 30 kt/y.

Coperion’s scope of work comprises all services and supplies which are required to build this plant on a green field within Total’s Carling complex:

Engineering, procurement and construction for all disciplines

The process core with two Coperion twin screw extruders ZSK Mc18, Coperion K-Tron feeding equipment, a classifier of Rotex and handling and storage of raw material and finished product incl. control system by Coperion

A new laboratory extruder ZSK 26 Mc18 with feeding equipment of Coperion K-Tron and strand pelletizer of Coperion Pelletizing Technology

The power supply for the process part as well as for the complete complex

Earthworks and leveling of the site
Piling works and foundations

Under and above ground network for power, fire water, cooling water, drainage and all other required utilities

Building complexes for production, administration, maintenance and storage of raw and finished product

Roads, parking lots and other graveled areas

Construction, installation and commissioning of the process core and all other systems of the plant ready for start-up

Two aspects were crucial to Coperion’s success in winning this contract with Total after a competitive tender. On the one hand we offered a plant concept optimizing investment without compromising safety, functionality and operability. On the other hand, it was our sound realization strategy, our process know-how, combined with deep understanding of all subsequent disciplines and project management expertise for this challenging project which helped us to achieve this success. In the meantime, the project is in realization phase and on right track.It will be finished in first half-year of 2016.
