In­stal­la­tion of waste heat boil­ers another mile­stone for Petronas

New Straits Times - - Business -

KUALA LUMPUR: Petro­liam Na­sional Bhd (Petronas) has suc­cess­fully in­stalled two mod­u­larised waste heat boil­ers for its re­fin­ery, which is un­der con­struc­tion at the Pengerang In­te­grated Com­plex (PIC) in Jo­hor.

The two waste heat boil­ers are im­por­tant com­po­nents of the resid­ual fluid cat­alytic crack­ing unit (RFCC) within the re­fin­ery, whose func­tion is to crack hy­drotreated at­mo­spheric residue into feed­stock for the steam cracker fa­cil­ity.

“The suc­cess­ful in­stal­la­tion of th­ese two iden­ti­cal waste heat boil­ers sig­ni­fies another im­por­tant mile­stone in the over­all de­vel­op­ment of the PIC, which is poised for start-up in the first quar­ter of 2019,” said Petronas Re­fin­ery and Petro­chem­i­cal Cor­po­ra­tion Sdn Bhd se­nior vi­cepres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Dr Colin Wong Hee Hu­ing in a state­ment.

Fab­ri­cated in Kaoh­si­ung, Tai­wan, each waste heat boiler weighs about 2,000 tonnes. They are the big­gest mod­u­larised waste heat boil­ers to have landed on Malaysia’s shores, and are recog­nised by the Malaysia Book of Records.

Also present at the in­stal­la­tion was Jo­hor Depart­ment of Oc­cu­pa­tional Safety and Health di­rec­tor Kor­main Mohd Noor.

The con­struc­tion of the waste heat boil­ers, along with the RFCC, was awarded to the con­sor­tium of CTCI Corp, Chiy­oda Corp, Syn­er­litz Malaysia Sdn Bhd and MIE In­dus­tries Sdn Bhd.

Upon com­ple­tion, PIC’s re­fin­ery will have a refin­ing ca­pac­ity of 300,000 bar­rels per day.
