Neste Jacobs has been awarded a contract to perform a comprehensive energy efficiency study of Unipetrol's Litvinov oil refinery in the Czech Republic.
The energy efficiency study will be performed by utilising Neste Jacobs' proprietary NAPCON energy performance analysis.
The study will review existing energy consumption and production within the refinery process units. This includes pinch-analysis to identify opportunities to improve heat integration of the process. This is combined with fired heater optimisation to maximise the benefits. The study also includes waste water optimisation assessment to minimise the water usage and recycling of waste water.
Jarmo Suominen, CEO of Neste Jacobs, said: "We are happy to provide our extensive energy efficiency and water management knowledge in the form of an energy study for Unipetrol's refinery in Litvinov […] Our excellent project team will provide systematic study to Unipetrol to discover solutions, which are both practical and lucrative."
Tomá Herink, Member of the Unipetrol Group's Board of Directors responsible for R&D, said: "Unipetrol has set an Energy Management System certified according to the ISO 50001:2011. The study is another very important step for a sustainable program in energy efficiency improvement in our company. Neste Jacobs' high technical knowledge of refinery projects and detailed process understanding convinced us to select them as our preferred partner in this project. They have good references on energy efficiency studies especially in oil refineries."
