Exceptional furnace replacement at Botlek

21 August 2019

For Shin-Etsu PVC, Ballast Nedam Industriebouw will realise the replacement of the R-201C furnace at its location in the Botlek, Rotterdam.

With a worldwide production capacity of more than 3 million tonnes, Shin-Etsu PVC is the world's largest PVC producer. At their Pernis location is a modern production plant, where PVC is produced from the vinyl chloride monomer originating from the Botlek location of Shin-Etsu PVC.

After having already carried out the preparatory civil work earlier this year, construction can now start. For the Replacement Furnace R-201C project, Ballast Nedam Industriebouw will carry out a considerable number of activities on, a.o. piping, painting, hydro testing, welding and assembling the furnace sections.
