New units for fuel oil reduction, Muskiz, Biscay, Spain.
New coker unit and coker storage (not in Sener scope), new cogeneration, new sulphur unit, new tanks, rewamping of visbreaking, amines, hydrogen, hydrotreatment, offsites and utilities.
SENER participated in the ADI-1000 project for the Somorrostro refinery (Muskiz, Biscay) facility modification, where it was in charge of the BOP block (Other Plants Block).This project achieved the adaptation of the refinery' s production structure to meet market expectations, which are focused on significantly decreasing fuel oil consumption, where heavy products are reduced by converting them into lighter ones that are in greater demand. The heavy fraction obtained in the distillation of crude yields the usual variety of fuels. The sulfur content in the fuels has also been reduced in order to adapt them to current environmental specifications.
The project’s scope includes the building of a cogeneration plant, sulphur unit, new storage (tanks), revamping of the visbreaking unit, amines unit, hydrogen plant, hydrotreatment plant, offsites and utilities.
