Eight years after the successful operation a client’s first steam reformer delivered by Caloric, an Italian company specialised in the recycling of used lubricants has opted for its second order from Caloric.

The new hydrogen plant, based on Caloric’s HC technology, will replace an existing plant.

Caloric’s experience and capabilities in customising plants was successfully applied for the limited plot area available at the customer site.

The fully pre-assembled plant will produce 310 Nm³/h of pure hydrogen. The delivery will be on a lump sum turnkey basis, whereas the erection and start-up will be executed during normal operation of the site.

The plant is scheduled to be in commercial operation in June 2012.
