Chart wins contract to supply BAHX for major ethylene project
Sasol has awarded Chart Energy & Chemicals, Inc., a contract for the supply of brazed aluminum heat exchangers (BAHX) and cold boxes for an ethane cracker at Lake Charles, LA. The BAHX will be engineered and manufactured in our La Crosse, Wisconsin plant and installed in cold boxes built at our dedicated facility in New Iberia, LA, before final shipment to Lake Charles. The Sasol owned cracker will produce an estimated 1.5 million tons of ethylene per annum and features Technip’s proprietary ethylene technology. The cracker benefits from low natural gas prices in the U.S. coupled with an abundance of ethane from natural gas liquid rich shale formations, which are driving the industry. Chart’s BAHX and cold box equipment is fundamental to cryogenic processing; a key stage in the liquefaction and processing of natural gas and separation of the high value natural gas liquids.
Steppin' Out in Pink
Huge congratulations to the La Crosse team that took part in September's Steppin' Out in Pink event and raised valuable funds for breast cancer research and awareness initiatives at the Gundersen Medical Foundation. Chart was also a sponsor of the event, which is an opportunity for participants to honor survivors and remember loved ones.
Chart Receives Standard LNG Plant Order
This latest standard liquefaction plant order furthers the use of LNG in North America as a clean burning, safe and economic fuel alternative to diesel. The C100N plant has a nominal production capacity of 100,000 gallons per day of LNG and utilises Chart's liquefaction technology with key equipment packages, including brazed aluminium heat exchangers, air cooled heat exchangers, cold box, storage tanks and rail and truck load-out facilities, all engineered and manufactured in-house. This vertically integrated approach allows Chart to deliver fast-track schedules to facilitate earlier commencement of LNG production.
Chart Industries Dedicates Facility Expansion at its Brazed Aluminum Heat Exchanger (BAHX) HQ in La Crosse, WI

BAHX offer significant economic and efficiency advantages versus other types of heat exchangers and are integral to cryogenic processing plants around the world for the production and purification of atmospheric gases, such as nitrogen and oxygen, the production of important raw materials, such as ethylene and propylene, and the processing and liquefaction of natural gas.
Chart's La Crosse facility employs more than 500 people and has a rich heritage boasting more than 60 years uninterrupted BAHX manufacturing in the area with more than 10,000 units produced to date. A five year union contract with Machinist Union LL2191 continues a proud 60 year partnership with the IAMAW.
In addition to ISO 14001 accreditation, the recent acknowledgement of La Crosse as a 'Zero Landfill Plant' puts it at the forefront of manufacturing sites around the world for its environmental credentials.
Chart is a leading independent global manufacturer of highly engineered equipment used in the production, storage and end-use of hydrocarbon and industrial gases. The majority of Chart's products are used throughout the liquid gas supply chain for purification, liquefaction, distribution, storage and end-use applications, the largest portion of which are energy-related. Chart has domestic operations located across the United States and an international presence in Asia, Australia and Europe. For more information, visit: http://ir.chartindustries.com/
