Sulzer Pumps to supply PetroChina for Guangxi refinery upgrade project

Sulzer Pumps will supply 40 pumps to PetroChina, the largest oil producer in China, for phase two of the Guangxi refinery project, officials said on Monday.

Located in Guangxi Province in southern China, the project will refine imported high-sulfur crude oil. It will have a capacity of 10 million tpy to supply fuels to southwestern areas of China, according to the companies.

The scope of Sulzer Pumps' supply includes 12 pumps for the residue hydrodesulfurization unit, 18 pumps for the diesel oil hydrotreating unit, and 10 pumps for the oil storage and transportation unit and utility unit.

Phase two of the Guangxi refinery project is scheduled for operation in October 2013. All of the pumps will contribute to the refinery's capacity to produce gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and liquefied petroleum gas as well as petrochemical products, the company says.

Sulzer Pumps will produce 34 pumps from its facilities in Suzhou and Dalian, China. The remaining pumps will be manufactured in Bruchsal, Germany and packaged in Suzhou.

All of these manufacturing sites integrate best practices from other Sulzer Pumps factories, ensuring operational excellence and meeting global standards for high quality and reliable delivery times, according to the company.
