Valtteri was given a tour of the 6,239 acre facility that will enable PIC to capitalise on the growing need for energy and commodity petrochemical products in Asia over the next two decades.
Due to start commercial operations by Q4 2019, Valtteri visited the “brain” of the complex, the Main Control Building, which provides critical communication connections for the Refinery, Steam Cracker Complex, Petrochemical plants and its six major associated facilities.

Valtteri met some of the facility’s 28,000 workforce and treated a lucky few to a driving experience. 30 students from local schools presented Valtteri with their F1 car designs.
