The engineering and technology group SENER has signed a contract with Samsung Ingeniería for the development of a ULSD (Ultra-Low-Sulphur Diesel) project to modernise the Salamanca oil refinery in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. As part of their modernisation plan to produce clean fuels, the state-owned petroleum company Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) awarded Samsung the contract in September 2014.
As a result of this agreement, SENER will perform the detailed engineering for the modernisation of units already in place and their integration with facilities outside battery limits.
SENER was awarded taking into account its excellent work in a previous project involving the hydrodesulphurisation units at PEMEX’s Tula and Salamanca oil refineries, where it performed the basic and extended basic engineering, and for its proven internal capability as demonstrated by its Power and Process division, which has worked on other important projects from the sector such as the combined cycle plant Agua Prieta II, the TG-8 Madero oil refinery co-generation project, the CYDSA co-generation plants, the Frontera and Los Ramones compression stations, the Alpek 95 MW co-generation facilities in Cosoleacaque in Veracruz and the fluid catalytic cracking unit in the La Cangrejera petrochemical plant, also for PEMEX.
This is the first contract SENER has signed with Samsung Mexico, and it will allow the company to be a part of PEMEX’s biggest projects at present.
