Uhde to construct PET melt plant for Yu¨rek in Turkey

Bursa, Turkey

Uhde Inventa-Fischer, a subsidiary of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, recently signed a contract with Yürek Polimer A.S. to build a new world-scale polymer plant in Bursa, Turkey. The proposed plant will produce PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and will generate 300 metric tons per day or 108,000 tons per year of PET melt, using thyssenkrupp technology.

The highlight of this plant is its design to transport the polymer melt directly to several downstream lines. This PET melt will be used for low-viscosity applications. Some of it will be converted into PET Chips, while some more will be changed to pre-oriented yarn.

Uhde Inventa-Fischer is expected to deliver basic and detail engineering along with all necessary components and technical services with regards to supervision for erection, pre-commissioning and commissioning. Uhde’s proprietary technology will be used to design the polycondensation plant to facilitate the production of high-quality polyester polymer.

Both companies have expressed delight about this collaboration to build a state-of-the-art PET plant.
