Technip has been awarded a lump sum contract to supply its proprietary technology, detailed engineering and procurement services for a reformer for a hydrogen plant in Turkey.
The plant is located near the STAR Aegean Refinery to be built in Izmir, Aliaga.
The reformer at the heart of a hydrogen plant will produce 160,000 Nm3/h of hydrogen product and high quality export steam to be used by the refinery.
The reformer project will be executed by Technip’s office in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands, a Technip centre of excellence in hydrogen technology. The grassroots refinery is expected to come on-stream in 2018.
Technip was also recently awarded a similar contract, by US-based global agribusiness CHS Inc., to provide proprietary technology and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for a grassroots hydrogen plant in Laurel, Montana.
The 40,000 Nm3/h hydrogen plant will be located at the CHS Refinery in Laurel, as part of the company’s ongoing upgrades to boost efficiency, increase diesel production, and process additional crudes.
Air Liquide is accelerating its growth in the Turkish market with the acquisition of Messer Aligaz Sanayi Gazlari, a subsidiary of fellow Tier One company Messer Group GmbH.
