New resid FCC unit in Taiwan due CO boiler

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 27 -- CTCI Corp., Taipei, has let a contract to subsidiaries of Foster Wheeler AG for supply of a carbon monoxide boiler for a new 80,000-b/d residual FCC unit at CPC Corp.'s Talin refinery in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

CTCI is the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor for the resid FCC unit. The 300,000-b/d Talin refinery is near to but independent from CPC's 220,000-b/d Kaohsiung refinery and petrochemical complex.

Foster Wheeler will provide an incinerator to destroy CO in the RFCC waste-gas stream, a boiler section to recover heat from the resulting flue gas, and a selective catalytic reduction flue-gas treating system to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides.
