Technip has been awarded by Total an engineering,
procurement services and construction management contract to
increase the capacity of the hydrocracker at the Normandy refinery located in Gonfreville,
France. This project, which is part of a larger
investment plan for the refinery, is valued at more than
100 million (of which Technips share is 20%).
Technips scope includes debottlenecking of the
hydrocracking plant and debottlenecking of the hydrogen unit
needed in order to operate the hydrocracker.
This extension will increase hydro-conversion capacity to
10,000 tpd from the current 8,000 tpd thereby enabling the
production of more diesel fuel and kerosene.
Technips operating center in Paris, France, will
execute the contract with support from the Groups
Zoetermeer, Netherlands, office.
