Dortmund-based Uhde GmbH has been awarded a contract by Sinopec International in Beijing to engineer China`s biggest vinyl chloride (VCM) plant with a capacity of 400,000 tonnes per year. The contract includes the licence, the basic engineering and providing training and commissioning support to the customer`s personnel.
The contract value for the above scope of services amounts to some US $8.5 million.
