Unidro has been awarded the HCAT Precursor Package by the French Contractor Axens, for the HCAT Feed System Project at Panipat Refinery in India.
The realization of the detailed engineering studies (mechanical and electro-instrumental) and the manufacture of a package for the Vacuum Residue treatment were requested by the client, in particular, the supply purpose includes:
– A catalyst storage/dosing section, consisting of a storage tank, pipes, valves, and instrumentation, as well as the installation of metering pumps on a subcontracting basis.
– A section for mixing the catalyst with the process fluid (Vacuum Residue), which includes pipes, valves, instrumentation (including Coriolis and Ultrasonic flow meters), and the installation of static and motorized mixers, supplied by the Customer on a subcontracting basis.
As always, we are thankful to our clients that choose Unidro as their reference partner.
With the end of November, Unidro has been awarded the Water Clean Up Package of the Ethane Cracking section by Technip Energies (which was awarded an EPC contract by Borouge, a joint venture between ADNOC and Borealis), for the Borouge 4 Expansion Project.
The new B-4 plant, located in the Ruwais Industrial Zone in Abu Dhabi, will bring the Borouge complex’s production of polyolefins to nearly 10 million tons per year, making it the largest production site of polyolefins in the world.
Our plant (Water Clean Up Package) will treat process water from ethane cracking, removing oil and suspended solids in order to enable its reuse. The treatment includes an initial induced gas flotation (IGF) section, a train of nutshell filters (NSF), and finally cartridge filters.
Flotators and filters will be fabricated at the Novara workshop while the piping prefabrication and skid assembly will take place in Levate.
Unidro’s work is placed in a context of absolute relevance and prestige.
With the beginning of December, NSI has formalized the acquisition of Veolia Mobile Solution, the branch of Veolia that rents Mobile Water Treatment Units.
This Europe-wide activity includes more than 400 units in containers/trailers; The business will integrate with Nijhuis’ Mobile Unit Division, covering the full range of inlet and Waste Water Treatment.
We proudly welcome our new #WaterChampions, this is a great chance to strength the position of our group in the Industrial Water market segment for the long term; the Mobile Water Solutions’ integration into the Saur Group will offer the opportunity to add values with Nijhuis Saur Industries for the benefit of our existing and future customers.
A few days ago, a huge Column Condensing Tower produced for the Enefit 280-2 Shale Oil Plant project left Unidro’s workshop to reach the port of Marghera, near Venice. From there it will sail to the installation plant in Estonia.
The unit that will be part of the Oil Condensation Plant has giant dimensions: at 85 tons and ø3.3m x 34m(length), its production turned out to be a demonstration of the capability and flexibility that has always characterized Unidro and its outstanding specialized Team.
Unidro has been awarded the water treatment packages by CTJV, a joint venture of Chiyoda Corporation (Japan) and Technip Energies, for the North Field East Project (“NFE”). The NFE Project covers the delivery of 4 mega trains, each with a capacity of 8 million tons per annum (“Mtpa”) of Liquified Natural Gas (“LNG”), and associated utility facilities. It will include a large CO2 Carbon capture and sequestration facility, leading to more than 25% reduction of Green House Gas emissions when compared to similar LNG facilities.
In order to meet the very strict process performance, and comply with a set of demanding quality and supply requirements, Unidro was selected by CTJV as being the preferred partner to design, engineer, manufacture and supply the integrated water treatment packages.
Qatargas is the world’s largest LNG company, it produces and supplies 77 million tons of LNG annually across the globe. Chiyoda and Technip Energies are both strong players in Qatar; we are very proud to have been awarded this important project, which is a great achievement of the whole team involved in the extensive and detailed proposal preparation process.
This project is a great example of our #MissionWater purpose, valuing the importance of sustainable water use, energy and resource recovery with all different stakeholders, to secure a smooth operation of the largest LNG production facility in the world and anticipating on the fast growing demand for renewable energy.
Unidro is one of the most reliable and wanted partners of the world’s major EPC contractors and it has proven this once again through new large and prestigious projects acquired in recent months, The Zohr Gas Field Project and TheManyar Smelter Project.
The Zohr Gas Field Project
The Zohr gas field is the biggest gas discovery in the Mediterranean Sea, spread over 100km2 within the offshore Shorouk Block (Egypt), it is operated by Belayim Petroleum Company (Petrobel), a 50:50 joint-venture between the Italian oil and gas Eni and the state-owned Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC).
Unidro is not new to this field, as the company had already been involved in the Zohr project since 2016 for the supply of several water treatment and process units. Recently, in the frame of a further Project expansion, the Client selected Unidro for the supply of a new condensate treatment plant, including deoiling on Activated Carbon Filters and polishing on resin Mixed Bed Exchangers, with a system capacity of 160 m3/h.
Zohr turns out to be a challenge for Unidro, since a super-fast track execution is requested. In fact, the shipment shall take place within 9 months after PO, an extremely short period of time especially in the current market situation when shortage of materials and components is often experienced.
As of today, 2.5 months after kick-off, the progress is very good and the expectation is to meet the target delivery date.
The Manyar Smelter Project
The Manyar Smelter Project is an initiative of Freeport McMoRan, a US based metal producer which has started construction of a $3bn copper smelter facility in Gresik, East Java, Indonesia.
Expected to be one of the biggest copper smelters in the world upon completion, this facility will have a production capacity of 1.7 million tonnes (Mt) a year of copper concentrate and it will produce 600,000t of copper cathode.
Unidro has been selected by the EPC Contractor (JV of Chiyoda Corporation, Japan and CTCI, Taiwan) to design and deliver a large water remineralization plant (to produce 1298m3/h Plant Water and 16m3/h Filtered Water), and the Sanitary Water Treatment Plant.
For all the above, these awards underscore how the top level quality, the large expertise and above all the high reliability guaranteed by Unidro are the key drivers for selection by our customers, not only in the O&G market but also in other heavy industry segments, as for the Manyard Smelter Project.
We are proud to announce you that Unidro will attend the GasTech Exhibition, one of the most important and largest fairs for gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry.
With over 750 exhibitors, Gastech 2022 will showcase new global products, solutions and technologies related to the market, demonstrating the value that companies can bring to the industry.
The event will take place from 5 September to 8th at Fiera Milano and it will be a beautiful opportunity to meet Unidro and know more about our expertise.
