VMY-unit for Indian oil refinery

The “Jamnagar” oil refinery, in the western state of Gujarat in India, is at present the largest oil refinery in the world. Furthermore, for many years it has been counted among the world’s largest industrial sites. AERZEN was entrusted by the operator for recycling purposes with a so-called Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) application, which realises the separation of poisonous carbon/ hydrogen gas mixtures under pressure. The technical concept of the Process Gas Division, based on an oil-injected VMY 536M-solution, including an extensive control system, convinced our customer and its partners. So, in February of this year, a nearly identical follow-up order was placed with AERZEN.

New dimensions
With a weight of more than 80 tons, and an installation surface of about 140 square metres, distributed over three so-called “skids”, for AERZEN and Emmerthaler Apparatebau GmbH this order represented a new dimension. By means of an extension of the work surface in Emmerthal, the parallel construction of the three skids could be guaranteed. In addition, there were particularly high and extensive quality demands in the customer specifications, verified during more than 30 visits. Only by means of special equipment could all three skids be loaded in Emmerthal in September. Due to the external dimensions of the seaworthy packed VMY-unit for transport to the Port of Hamburg, only the Mittelland Canal was considered. Procurement, inspection and transfer of documents for the follow-up order are currently in full swing. As of January 2016, construction and pipework fabrication in Emmerthal will begin again.
