Burckhardt Compression has been selected by Technip Energies as the compressor supplier for the Assiut hydrocracking complex in Egypt.
The order includes three fully packaged API 618 Process Gas Compressors, which will be used for the facility’s hydrocracking unit.
The Assiut hydrocracking complex in Egypt will be one of the country’s major strategic refineries and will help to meet growing local demand for cleaner products, mainly EURO-V diesel. The EURO-V standard reduces atmospheric pollutants by imposing stricter limits on exhaust emissions. Burckhardt Compression’s three make-up gas compressor units, each with a frame rating of 1700 kN, will be a vital part of this refining project, the largest in Upper Egypt.
Once completed, the new hydrocracking complex will transform lower-value petroleum products into cleaner products and is expected to have an output of approximately 2.8 million tpy of EURO-V diesel in addition to other petroleum products.
