Technip won a contract comprising technology, engineering services and
supply of core equipment for the new coke calcination unit
of Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer),
officials confirmed on Friday.
This new unit is part of the carbon black and delayed coker
project being implemented adjacent
to Takreers existing Ruwais refinery located in the United Arab
The unit will consist of two trains and is designed to
process 700,000 tpy of superior-quality anode green petroleum
coke through 2 kilns, thanks to the implementation of
world-leading licensed technologies.
The processed coke will be used as anode coke for Abu Dhabi's
growing aluminium industry. Technip will support the EPC
contractor, Samsung Engineering, until the completion of the
performance testing of the new unit.
Technip's operating center in Düsseldorf, Germany will
execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed by the
fourth quarter of 2015.
"This contract follows the successful completion of the
process design package for this new coke calcination unit for
Takreer last year," said Mesut Sahin, managing director of
Technip in Germany.
"The award reinforces the world-leading position of the rotary
kiln and cooler technologies representing about 70% of the
worlds total calcined coke production capacity. We are
proud for being entrusted to design and deliver our 7th
reference plant to our customers."
