MAN Diesel & Turbo has announced that it will deliver two compressor trains to Nigerian Dangote Oil Refining Co.
The compressor rains will be employed at the company’s refinery in Lagos, Nigeria, which Dangote believes will satisfy 100% of the country’s fuel needs.
Wayne Jones, Member of the Executive Board and Chief Sales Officer of MAN Diesel & Turbo, said: “This is a milestone project and will have a huge impact on the economy of not only Nigeria but the whole of the West African region. We are very proud to be a part of this project and gladly offer our equipment and technological expertise in order to help to make the Dangote refinery not only Africa’s biggest but also one of the most efficient operations on the continent.”
Sohail A. Khan, Managing Director of MAN Diesel & Turbo in Nigeria, added: “This refinery new building is underlining the long-term growth perspective Nigeria and the region of West Africa have. We are here to serve customers with high-performance technology for the oil and gas industry, process industry or the ever-rising need for efficient power generation.”
The trains, which are being designed and built at MAN Diesel & Turbo’s turbomachinery technology site in Germany, will consist of an axial compressor driven by a steam turbine with approximately 30 MW power. Delivered with a comprehensive auxiliary package, they will come into operation for the refinery process of Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC), thereby supporting the production of fuel.
Delivery will take place in the course of 2018, while commissioning of the whole refinery is planned for 2019.
