Further delay in construction of Accsys’ Tricoya works

26.04.2019 − 

The start-up of the world’s first Tricoya plant for producing acetylated woodchips in Hull, England, will probably not occur until the beginning of 2020. According to a release published by the chemical-technology company Accsys Technologies on 25 March, this means that commercial production will probably not be able to commence until the beginning of the business year 2020/2021 (31 March). Accsys had last been striving to complete the construction works by the middle of this year. When construction work began in July 2017, however, the company had still been working from the assumption of a start-up in early 2019.

According to information from Accsys, the commissioned EPC contractor (engineering, procurement, construction) Engie Fabricom of Grimsby is responsible for the latest delay, their tasks including strengthening the foundations and the steel structure of the main production building. In its release, the company emphasises expressly that the acetylation technology being used for woodchips at the works for the first time has not played any part in the delay.
