Shanghai, China (6 September 2017) - Wison Offshore & Marine Ltd. (‘Wison’) today announced that it has won a pipe rack modular construction project in the United States (the ‘U.S.’). These pipe rack modules are to be used for a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) project of Formosa Plastics Corporation in Texas.
