Petronas creates another record


Dateline 2016-06-27, NST:

PETROLIAM Nasional Bhd (Petronas) has achieved another milestone by receiving the tallest and heaviest propylene fractionator process column for the steam cracker facility within its Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) in Pengerang, Johor, on Saturday. The fractionator would complement the overall development of the PIC, poised for its refinery start-up by early 2019. It also established a new record as the tallest and heaviest process column to have landed on Malaysian shores. The column measures 121.3m — equivalent to a 36-storey building — and weighs 1,808.6 tonnes. “I am proud to announce that our propylene fractionator has been recognised by the Malaysia Book of Records as the tallest and heaviest process column in Malaysia,” said Petronas senior vice-president and Petronas Refinery and Petrochemical Corporation Sdn Bhd chief executive officer (CEO) Dr Colin Wong Hee Huing.
