SteamGen™ 8 Projects

In projects where power production is the primary requirement SteamGen™ 8 offers the best and most readily available HRSG technology on the market.

Tupras Refinery - Turkey

Tüpras Izmit Refinery is investing in a large extension next to the existing Refinery. The "RESID Upgrade Project". EPC contractor is build by Technicas Reunidas. The solution to secure the steam supply is two SteamGenTM8 Heat Recovery Steam Generators after two GE 6581B Gas Turbines. To achive an optimized solution the boilers are supplementary fired. Further the boilers have fresh air firing in the case of Gas Turbine failure.

The contract covers design, procurement, production, erection and commissioning of two single-pressure HRSG.

All equipment is purchased by Aalborg Engineering.
