Technip has been awarded a lump sum contract to supply its proprietary technology, detailed engineering and procurement services for a reformer for a hydrogen plant. The plant is located near the STAR Aegean Refinery to be built in Izmir, Aliaga, Turkey.
The reformer, which is the heart of a hydrogen plant, will produce 160 000 Nm3/hr of hydrogen product and high quality export steam to be used by the refinery.
Early involvement represents a strategic focus for Technip. After having provided basic engineering for the complete hydrogen plant, the Group will now carry out the detailed engineering and supply of the reformer, based on Technip’s proprietary top-fired steam methane reforming technology.
"We are delighted to continue our involvement with this project and see that the application of Technip’s proprietary technology is increasing our global footprint in refinery applications,” said Stan Knez, President, Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology.
The reformer project will be executed by Technip’s office in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands, a Technip centre of excellence in hydrogen technology. The grassroots refinery is foreseen to come onstream in 2018.
With over 260 hydrogen units licensed worldwide, Technip has been consistently recognised as the market leader in the design and supply of hydrogen reformers and hydrogen production plants.
