Two new contracts in the O&G business have been awarded to Unidro by the JV of Saipem (Italy), Chiyoda (Japan) and Daewoo (Korea) in the frame of the seventh Nigerian LNG train Project to be executed in Bonny Island, Nigeria.

The POs cover the supply of a Demineralised Water Production Unit, based on ion exchange technology, and an Amine Filtration Unit. Both units will be delivered in 2022.

This order confirms the strong presence of Unidro in the largest international LNG projects of the last few years, including Qatar, Mozambique, Australia, Indonesia, PNG.

Unidro is going to strengthen its presence into the U.S.A. by adding the fourth train to the existing Condensate Carbon Filter Package (supplied in 2015) in Cedar Bayou, TX, USA, Chevron Phillips’s Plant.

Assiut National Oil Processing Company (ANOPC) is realizing a new Hydrocracking Complex for the Assiut refinery in Egypt. Different EPC contractors are involved in this large project, including Technip FMC, Siirtec-Nigi, ENPPI, Petrojet and others.

Nijhuis-Saur Industry Group is very much involved in this strategic project as technology provider and equipment supplier. Namely, the design and supply of the complete WWT system for the new Hydrocracker was awarded to Nijhuis earlier this year and a Spent Caustic Treatment Package (based on Siemens WAO technology) is being realized by Unidro.

Additionally, Unidro received multiple orders for highly critical equipment thanks to its proven expertise that combine our shop manufacturing skills, the excellent project management services and undisputed finished products’ quality.

The scope awarded to Unidro includes internals of Degassing Box and Sulphur Pit, Claus Thermal Reactor Package, Claus Burner, Thermal Incinerator, Heat Exchangers and Ejectors for vacuum systems

These days Unidro has been awarded by ENPPI the supply of n.1 Reducing Reactor and n.2 First & Second Converters complete with castable refractory.

The delivery of all our scope is expected in 2022 and all projects are being executed in the two operating centers in the Nedherlands (Doetinchem) and Italy (Milano, Bergamo and Novara).

Unidro has been engaged by QP through the Contractor Worley, to prepare a Front-End Engineering Design for the revamping of the Wastewater Treatment Plant at the Mesaieed Refinery, in Qatar.

Unidro was selected due to its wide experience in handling Projects of similar complexity and serving the highly demanding O&G market. Both Qatar Petroleum and the EPC Contractor expressed great appreciation for the extremely proactive and solution-oriented support that Unidro granted throughout this entire FEED phase.

Unidro presence in Qatar dates back 20 years and more than 30 units have been supplied and are now in operation in different industrial facilities in this that is the first LNG export country in the world.

Unidro staff is presently engaged in the start-up of three Produced Water Treatment Plants in Hassi R’Mel, Algeria. This is by far the largest active gas production area in Algeria. “Boosting Phase III”, a project awarded to JGC corporation in 2016, is approaching the completion phase. Unidro is working in three different sites in the same gas field (North, Center, South) and all plants are going in operation at the same time; start-up has been successful and Unidro field team, supported by our process specialist in Milano HQ, are now fine tuning all the operating parameters to prepare for the Final Acceptance Test and handover to Sonatrach, the End User expected within 2021.

Unidro will supply a Condensate Treatment and Recovery Package in the frame of a Waste to Energy project in A2A Brescia, Power Station.

The energy recovery from exhaust fumes is designed and supplied by the French LAB (group CNIM), and the recovered energy is used for remote heating.

The unit ordered to Unidro will treat condensate water and recover it as demineralized water by means of UF, RO and EDI technologies. A similar system was supplied by Unidro a few years ago for the Hofor PS in Copenhagen, and is now successfully in operation.

Saur finalized the acquisition of Nijhuis Industries, the Dutch leader in industrial water treatment solutions. The Saur Group will now bring Saur Industrie, Unidro and Econvert together with Nijhuis to form its new Industry Division.

The creation of this new division further illustrates and highlights Saur’s ambition to make its role as a defender of water a central commitment that will drive its future growth.
Supported by the unique ‘customer for life approach’ this merger will also enable Saur to build a comprehensive portfolio of innovative and adaptive solutions for industrial water users: the Saur Group is now a leading actor in this global market contributing to a more sustainable, resilient and inclusive future.

Patrick Blethon, Chief Executive Officer of the Saur Group: “Only a clean industry will be able to deliver an effective response to the ecological and reindustrialization issues that are now central to the concerns of our regions. Saur wants to work closely with industrial companies and local authorities to succeed in the challenge of building European industrial sovereignty.”

Saipem, Chiyoda and McDermott Joint Venture selected Unidro as a supplier of several Water Treatment Packages inside the new On Shore LNG plant in Mozambique for Total (End User).

This is the second big LNG project in Mozambique, after Coral FLNG (ENI End User), and in both cases Unidro has been selected to supply the water and waste water treatment packages.
Our new supply will include a number of units:

During the years our Ecoservice workshop in Bergamo area has become the heart of Unidro systems assembly and factory testing, prior to shipment. As Unidro continued its growth, the original facility turned to be less adequate in terms of space and equipment and in the last few years temporary locations, as available in the nearby area, had to be added upon need.
Finally, in 2019 the decision was taken to look for a new location, in order to match the requirements of the more and more demanding Company business. The place has been identified in Levate (still Bergamo area) and the migration planned for H2 2020.
The transfer is now started and will be completed by the end of the year.
Once the migration is completed our E&I engineering department, software development team, quality control staff will be located in brand-new offices. Comfortable space for meeting clients members and inspectors is also available. Within the same building, a large shop area (more than twice the surface of the former facility) fully equipped to host the activities of piping fabrication, skid assembly and testing, control panel assembly, wiring and testing will allow for the execution of our work in full compliance with the quality, safety and health requirements, and a perfect job continuity among engineers, workers, suppliers and clients will be ensured.

This is an important step on the continuous path of Unidro to meet our Client’s expectation and to cope with a growing business. Moreover, in this very difficult period, this move wants to be a positive message to our staff, clients and suppliers, of confidence in the future.
