Saudi refinery and power co-generation
Foster Wheeler Ltd has announced that its subsidiary, Foster Wheeler Energy Limited has been awarded a project management services contract for two distillate hydrotreaters and power co-generation plants by Aramco Overseas Company. Foster Wheeler’s scope of work associated with the hydrotreaters is to provide engineering and project management services for facilities at Saudi Aramco’s Riyadh and Yanbu refineries. This work follows Saudi Arabia’s plans to improve the ambient air quality for the most populated cities, Riyadh, Jeddah and Makkah, by switching to lower-sulphur diesel fuel in 2006.
Foster Wheeler has been contracted to upgrade the mid-distillates to low-sulphur diesel at both refineries. The facilities will enable the refineries initially to produce 500 ppm and eventually 50 ppm sulfur content diesel.
In addition, Foster Wheeler is to provide engineering and project management services for the power co-generation plants, the first of which will be at Berri. All facilities will provide combustion gas turbine generators with heat recovery steam generators as well as high-voltage substations, high-voltage transmission lines, and cooling tower/fin fan coolers. Existing plant systems and utilities, including the distributed control system, will be upgraded.
