Technip Awarded Contract for "Connect" Refining Project in Germany
Technip has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management contract by Shell for the first phase of its "Connect" project in Germany. By connecting two existing refineries in Godorf and Wesseling Shell will create the largest refinery in Germany: the Rheinland refinery.
This first phase of the project will be implemented in the Wesseling refinery. It includes the modification of process units (desulphurisation and hydrogen manufacturing) as well as the construction of new facilities. The units at Wesseling will also be used for the desulphurisation of gas oil produced in Godorf.
Through this major investment Shell will enhance and increase its production capacity of low sulphur gas oil to ensure its long-term competitiveness.
Technip's operating centre in Düsseldorf, Germany, will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2010. This contract is a new step in the successful collaboration between Technip and Shell, for whom the Group developed the basic design package for this first phase of the Connect project in 2008, and is currently working on the basic design packages for the other phases.
