Two new demanding challenges for Unidro

Unidro is one of the most reliable and wanted partners of the world’s major EPC contractors and it has proven this once again through new large and prestigious projects acquired in recent months, The Zohr Gas Field Project and The Manyar Smelter Project.

 

The Zohr Gas Field Project

The Zohr gas field is the biggest gas discovery in the Mediterranean Sea, spread over 100km2 within the offshore Shorouk Block (Egypt), it is operated by Belayim Petroleum Company (Petrobel), a 50:50 joint-venture between the Italian oil and gas Eni and the state-owned Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC).

Unidro is not new to this field, as the company had already been involved in the Zohr project since 2016 for the supply of several water treatment and process units. Recently, in the frame of a further Project expansion, the Client selected Unidro for the supply of a new condensate treatment plant, including deoiling on Activated Carbon Filters and polishing on resin Mixed Bed Exchangers, with a system capacity of 160 m3/h.

Zohr turns out to be a challenge for Unidro, since a super-fast track execution is requested. In fact, the shipment shall take place within 9 months after PO, an extremely short period of time especially in the current market situation when shortage of materials and components is often experienced.

As of today, 2.5 months after kick-off, the progress is very good and the expectation is to meet the target delivery date.

 

The Manyar Smelter Project

The Manyar Smelter Project is an initiative of Freeport McMoRan, a US based metal producer which has started construction of a $3bn copper smelter facility in Gresik, East Java, Indonesia.

Expected to be one of the biggest copper smelters in the world upon completion, this facility will have a production capacity of 1.7 million tonnes (Mt) a year of copper concentrate and it will produce 600,000t of copper cathode.

Unidro has been selected by the EPC Contractor (JV of Chiyoda Corporation, Japan and CTCI, Taiwan) to design and deliver a large water remineralization plant (to produce 1298m3/h Plant Water and 16m3/h Filtered Water), and the Sanitary Water Treatment Plant.

For all the above, these awards underscore how the top level quality, the large expertise and above all the high reliability guaranteed by Unidro are the key drivers for selection by our customers, not only in the O&G market but also in other heavy industry segments, as for the Manyard Smelter Project.

Column Condensing Tower for Enefit 280-2 Shale Oil Plant project
A few days ago, a huge Column Condensing Tower produced for the Enefit 280-2 Shale Oil Plant project left Unidro's workshop to reach the port of Marghera, near Venice. From there it will sail to the installation plant in Estonia. The unit that will be part of the Oil Condensation Plant has giant dimensions: at 85 tons and ø3.3m x 34m(length), its production turned out to be a demonstration of the capability and flexibility that has always characterized Unidro and its outstanding specialized Team.
