Uhde Inventa-Fischer: Polyamide 6 Plant in Vietnam
In autumn 2011 the plant engineering company Uhde Inventa-Fischer and Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corporation (FCFC) of Taiwan successfully commissioned a plant for the production of high-performance polyamide 6 for textile applications. The new plant is located to the south of Ho Chi Min City in Vietnam. The polymerization plant uses Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s proprietary High-Performance Polyamide 6 technology (HPPA) to produce an annual capacity of 47,000 tonnes of full-dull or semi-dull chips. The overall plant is designed to allow for fast and simple integration of a second 130 tonne-per-day line at the front of the building.
Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s scope of supplies included the know-how licence, the formulae for the high performance additives, the basic engineering, supervision of the detail engineering, the supply of all relevant equipment, supervision of the erection and the commissioning management. In addition, the operating personnel of Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corporation were trained to operate the plant by experienced Uhde Inventa-Fischer specialists.
