Technip awarded contract for H2 plant in Romania
Technip (Paris, Framce; www.technip.com
) has been awarded by Rominserv and Rompetrol Rafinare (both members of The Rompetrol Group), a lumpsum contract, worth approximately 40 million euros, for a hydrogen plant to be constructed at the Petromidia Refinery in Constana, Romania.
Based on Technip's proprietary technology, the plant will have a capacity of 40,000 Nm³/h of 99.98% purity H2, and will also deliver approximately 40 m.t./h high-pressure steam.
Technip’s operating center in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands, will execute the contract, which covers licensing and basic design, detailed engineering, procurement and supply of main equipment and materials. Technip will also provide operator training and technical assistance during construction, commissioning and start-up. Rominserv (general contractor of The Rompetrol Group) will procure the remainder of the equipment and materials, and carry out the construction of the plant.
The plant, which represents an overall investment of approximately 65 million euros, is scheduled to be completed in 2010. It is part of a major investment program to increase the Petromidia Refinery’s hydrofining
capacity, to bring product qualities exclusively to Euro 5 standards, and to increase processing capacity to 5 million m.t./yr.
