DL E&C disclosed that it hosted the groundbreaking ceremony for the Golden Triangle Polymers Project (GTPP) in Orange County, Texas, US on the 7th (local time). DL E&C Plant Biz Director Yu Jae-ho attended the ceremony along with the client’s personnel. 
 
GTPP is a project ordered by Golden Triangle Polymers, a joint corporation between the US’s Chevron Phillips Chemical and Qatar Energy. The project involves building two polyethylene production units with annual production capacity of annual 1 million tons—the world’s largest—and aims to start commercial operations in 2026.   
 
DL E&C bagged the project in July last year. DL E&C’s local subsidiary DL USA will perform the project jointly with US construction firm Zachry Industrial. 
 
DL E&C plans to provide a solution optimized for the project by applying cutting-edge technologies, such as modular tech and BIM, and carry out the project successfully. 
 
The company has experiences in carrying out numerous projects ordered by the client, Chevron Phillips Chemical. DL E&C won GTPP as its technological capabilities and project-performing abilities have been recognized. Since the project is the first petrochemical plant construction of DL E&C, more orders in the US market are expected to be won.
