Technip to supply HDS unit to Polish refinery

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Nov. 29 -- PKN Orlen SA has awarded Technip a contract worth €67 million for construction of a diesel oil hydrodesulfurization (HDS) unit at its 376,500 b/cd refinery in Plock, Poland.

This project, which will enable the refinery to increase production of high-purity diesel oil in compliance with the European Norm, also includes a wild naphtha-stripping unit and a gas amine treating-regeneration unit.

The HDS unit, which will be based on the Albemarle ultradeep HDS process, will produce 260 tons/hr of high-purity diesel oil, with a maximum of 10 ppm (wt) of sulfur. It will be one of the largest of its kind, Technip said.

Construction of the unit is scheduled for completion in June 2009.

The contract covers license, basic and detail engineering, procurement and supply of equipment and materials, supervision of construction, precommissioning and commissioning, start-up, and test runs.
