One of the largest equipment ever delivered to the Port of Antwerp in one piece by ship for Borealis' propane dehydrogenation plant (PDH) in Kallo, Belgium. The propylene splitter is a distillation column to split propane from propylene. With a length of 105 metres, a width of 10 metres and a weight of 1,600 tonnes, the splitter is an important element of Borealis’ new plant and will eventually define the location’s skyline. The plant will have a targeted annual production capacity of 750 kilotons p.a., making it one of the largest facilities in the world. Production is expected to start by the end of 2022.
