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/h(1) 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.
Stan Knez, President, Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology, commented: “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.”
