Technip awarded €67m

Technip has been awarded a contract worth approximately €67m by PKN Orlen for the construction of a new diesel oil hydrodesulphurisation unit in its refinery in Plock, Poland.



Technip’s operations and engineering centre in Rome, Italy, will execute the project that includes the licence, basic and detailed engineering, procurement and supply of equipment and materials, supervision of construction, precommissioning and commissioning, start-up and test runs.



Services, materials and equipment supply will be delivered on a lump sum basis; activities at site will be charged on a reimbursable basis.



The construction of the unit is scheduled to be completed in June 2009.



The new unit, based on the “Albemarle ultra deep HDS” process, will produce 260 tons/hour of high purity diesel oil (with a maximum of 10ppmwt of sulphur).



The project, which also includes a wild naphtha stripping unit and a gas amine-treating/regeneration unit, will enable the Plock refinery to increase the production of high purity diesel oil.
