Elliott Compressors Installed in Dow Ethylene Plant



Elliott Compressors at the Heart of New Dow Ethylene Plant

Elliott Group will supply the main compression equipment for Dow Chemical Company’s world-scale cracker to be built in Freeport, TX.  Known as LHC-9, the plant will take advantage of shale gas-based ethane feedstocks. This will be one of the largest ethylene plants in North America and the largest in Dow’s operations. 

Brook Tolman, Elliott’s Global Director, Engineered Products, said, “Elliott has for many years set the benchmarks for compression designs and power in olefins processing. We are committed to maintaining this leadership position through investment in advanced engineering and manufacturing.   We will draw upon the capabilities of both of our manufacturing facilities, in Sodegaura, Japan and in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, to produce the four large compressor trains for Dow.” The compressor designs will be based upon Elliott’s proven EDGE® technology.  The strings will be driven by Elliott’s efficient, highly reliable steam turbines.   “We are proud to be a partner with Dow on this project and we look forward to its success,” said Tolman.
