Source: KUNA 5/17/2017, Location: Asia

The construction of a quay for a Kuwait-China refinery and petrochemical project in south China's Guangdong Province is scheduled to complete in September, the state-run China Daily reported.

'Wharf engineering is an important part of the project, which is the largest of its kind in China. So far, 64 of 715 piles have been sunk for the construction of an approach bridge for the berthing of ships, and 50 percent of the cast-in-place concrete piles finished,' Chen Zixiang, manager for the seawater sub-project, was quoted as saying.

Another six berths will be constructed to form a fully functional quay, used for loading and unloading coal, heavy items, and liquid chemicals. According to Chen, the entire project, located on Donghai Island in Zhanjiang City, is expected to finish in 2020. 'We will make sure we complete the laying of 715 piles in the next four months,' Chen added.

The project is operated by state-owned Kuwait Petroleum Corporation and China's petrochemical giant Sinopec, the daily said. The 6-square-km complex will be able to process 10 million tons of crude oil and produce 800,000 tons of ethylene annually upon completion of its first construction phase, it said .
