Haltermann Carless, HCS Group brand and provider of specialty hydrocarbons has commissioned Neste Jacobs to plan an upgrade and expansion of their production site in Speyer, Germany.
Frankfurt/Germany — A hydrogenation unit, based on Neste Jacobs’ Nexsat-technology, will be installed in order to process larger feedstock volumes and respond to the increasing demand for very low aromatic and more eco-friendly oils and specialty hydrocarbon chemicals, the company announced.
“This project is not only a clear commitment to our existing production sites in Europe” says Dr. Uwe Nickel, Chief Executive Officer, HCS Group. “Furthermore the investment into hydrogenation technology is another important milestone in implementing our Strategy 2020 and writing the next chapter of the HCS Group’s development. Bringing a new while tailored technology to our Speyer site will not only secure and offer attractive jobs but will also provide new offerings for several industrial applications. We are convinced that Neste Jacobs is the engineering partner to implement state of the art technology in production, another cornerstone and the logical consequence of increasing flexibility and competence at HCS Group in all areas."
“We at Neste Jacobs are very excited to be the preferred partner for Haltermann Carless’ next generation technology project. This is yet another great example of how partnership and vision can be successfully combined with our abilities to provide and adapt our top-notch process technologies to market demands.
