London/UK — By revamping the vacuum distillation unit, BP intends to increase the value of the products, manufactured at the site. The engineering company will apply the so called "More 4 Less" approach of removing complexity and maximising efficiency, including modularisation and lean engineering.

Marco Moresco, President of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Downstream Capital Projects for Europe, Middle East and Africa said: “This latest contract win builds upon our long-standing relationship with BP Oil in Spain, with the execution of more than 30 successful projects over 25 years at the Castellón refinery.”
