Technip wins 'significant' Takreer contract
Abu Dhabi, May 28, 2013
Technip has won a "significant" contract comprising technology, engineering services and supply of core equipment for Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company's (Takreer) new coke calcination unit.
This new unit is part of the Carbon Black & Delayed Coker project being implemented adjacent to Takreer’s existing Ruwais refinery located in the UAE.
The unit will consist of two trains and is designed to process 700,000 tons per annum superior-quality anode green petroleum coke through two kilns. The processed coke will be used as anode coke for Abu Dhabi's growing aluminium industry, said a statement.
Technip will support the EPC contractor, Samsung Engineering, until the completion of the performance testing of the new unit.
Technip's operating centre in Düsseldorf, Germany, will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2015.
Mesut Sahin, managing director of Technip in Germany, said: “This contract follows the successful completion of the process design package for this new coke calcination unit for Takreer last year. The award reinforces the world-leading position of the rotary kiln and cooler technologies representing about 70 per cent of the world’s total calcined coke production capacity. We are proud for being entrusted to design and deliver our 7th reference plant to our customers."
The value of the contract has not been revelaled, but Technip said for the company, a “significant” onshore contract ranges from €50 million ($64.66 million) to €100 million ($129.33 million). - TradeArabia News Service
