[VIDEO] Technip Energies delivers Blade project modules
Technip Energies has hit a milestone at the ExxonMobil’s Beaumont Refinery expansion project in Texas.
The company informed on Monday, June 28, that is has delivered 17,000 tons of fabricated modules to the project site.
Technip secured the contract in 2019 to deliver detailed engineering, procurement, and construction for the expansion project in Beaumont.
The awarded scope covers the addition of four new units – atmospheric pipe still, kerosene hydrotreater, diesel hydrotreater and benzene recovery at ExxonMobil’s refinery.
The new units of this expansion project will be integrated into the existing facilities at the refinery. The expansion will optimize the facility by giving ExxonMobil the flexibility to run lighter crudes.
Through its social media channels, Technip Energies released a video showing the modules being moved into place.
The barging, transport and setting of modules, has been subcontracted to the heavy lift specialist Mammoet.
The company transported the pieces by means of SPMT, and set them using its LR13000, the largest crawler crane in the world.
The expansion project, known as the Blade project is scheduled for completion in 2022.
