The energy efficiency study will be performed by utilizing Neste Jacobs' proprietary NAPCON energy performance analysis, that is a combination of high level process know-how and modeling skills, pinch-technology, equipment expertise and automation solutions. Neste Jacobs' energy analysis with a modular approach will identify the feasible improvement potential and create an action plan to implement the improvements.
The study will review existing energy consumption and production within the refinery process units. This includes pinch-analysis to identify opportunities to improve heat integration of the process. This is combined with fired heater optimization to maximize the benefits. On top of energy efficiency, the study includes waste water optimization assessment to minimize the water usage and recycling of waste water.
"We are happy to provide our extensive energy efficiency and water management knowledge in the form of an energy study for Unipetrol's refinery in Litvinov," said Jarmo Suominen, CEO of Neste Jacobs. "Our excellent project team will provide systematic study to Unipetrol to discover solutions, which are both practical and lucrative."
