Fluidized Cracker Project Foster Wheeler Builds Incinerator for Vietnamese Cracker Project
A Foster Wheeler subsidiary will supply a carbon monoxide incinerator package for a residue fluidized catalytic cracker at the Nghi Son Refinery project in Vietnam.
Hanoi/Vietnam – Foster Wheeler will design the incinerator in accordance with the CO emissions requirements of the new complex, company speakers stated. The CO incinerator is expected to be shipped FOB (free on board) as one single module during the second quarter of 2015. The contract was awarded by JGC Corporation (UK), which is acting on behalf of the engineering, procurement and construction consortium for the US $ 9 billion Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical complex to be constructed in the Nghi Son Economic Zone inVietnam.“This award reinforces Foster Wheeler’s position as a leading supplier of CO incinerator technology,” said Roberto Penno, Chief Executive Officer of Foster Wheeler’s Global E&C Group. “Supplying this equipment as a single module reduces field construction time, delivering major safety and schedule benefits. The incinerator will also be designed to help meet the low emissions targets of the new complex. This is a very important second award for this complex in Vietnam for our UK Fired Heater Division, and follows the first award, in 2013, of two Terrace Wall hydrogen reformers.”
