Fives Proabd awarded contract from BASF PETRONAS Chemicals

Proabd® MSC unit for the production of a flavoring agent.

In May, 2015, Fives Proabd was awarded a contract by BASF PETRONAS Chemicals (BPC), a joint-venture between BASF SE and PETRONAS Chemicals Group Berhad. The contract entails the provision of a Proabd® Melt Static Crystallization (MSC) unit as part of the new Lemongrass project in Kuantan, Malaysia. 

The Proabd® MSC technology will be implemented in a new world-scale complex for the production of a flavoring agent. Fives Proabd will supply a complete crystallization unit including the Basic Design Package, the proprietary crystallizers, the Process Control System, as well as the distribution manifolds. The start-up of the plant is scheduled for 2017 and it will help meet the globally growing demand for flavors and fragrances on Asia Pacific markets.
