Zeeland Refinery in the Netherlands has announced that it is to expand the refinery’s hydrocracker with an additional reactor.
The new 30 m high reactor arrived via ship on Thursday 18 July, and was transported to the refinery site during the night with special transport.
The reactor is a €40 million investment made by Total and Lukoil, shareholders in the refinery.
With the expansion, the hydrocracker will operate more energy-efficiently, recucing CO2 emissions by approximately 10 000 t.
The reactor will be connected to the existing installation in 2020.
