Foster Wheeler gets contract for a delayed coker heater in Argentina

 

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG’s subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded a contract by YPF SA for the delayed coker heater for the new delayed coking unit at YPF’s Complejo Industrial La Plata in Argentina.

Foster Wheeler’s scope of work includes engineering, equipment supply and supervision to construction and start-up. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed and the contract value was included in the company's fourth-quarter 2010 bookings.

The fired heater is an integral part of the new coker, which uses Foster Wheeler’s leading Selective Yield Delayed Coking (SYDECSM) technology. Foster Wheeler is providing the detailed engineering, procurement services, and assistance with construction and plant start-up for the new coker. The delayed coker heater for the new delayed coking unit is expected to be completed by June of 2012.

“The coker heater is an integral part of our coking technology and incorporates key design features which are pivotal to the excellent performance and reliability delivered by our cokers,” said Umberto della Sala, Interim CEO, Foster Wheeler AG.

Foster Wheeler’s SYDECSM process is a flexible thermal conversion process used by refiners worldwide to upgrade heavy residue feed and process it into high value transport fuels and coke products for fuel and metallurgical markets.
