Two Rodeo Renewed reactor units head for the refinery
The Phillips 66 Rodeo Renewed project is moving forward with the recent delivery of two reactor units to the Port of Stockton in California. The two oversized units have completed their journey from the Port of Hazira in India to Stockton.
From the port of Stockton, the two units will be transported to the P-66 San Francisco refinery in Rodeo, California.
A number of parties were involved in getting the two reactor units to the Port of Stockton. dship carriers’ MV Keith loaded the cargo in India. The vessel is an F-500 multi-purpose heavy lift vessel built by Taizhou Sanfu Shipbuilding for dship Carriers. It is equipped with two Liebherr cranes, featuring a lifting capacity of 250 metric tons each, and has a deadweight of 12,385 mt.
At the port of Stockton, the cargo was transshipped to a Lind Marine’s barge for further transport to the project site. Metro Ports completed the heavy lifting portion of the job at the port of Stockton.
Being developed by Phillips 66, Rodeo Renewed projects aims to transform the existing Rodeo Refinery into a facility that converts renewable feedstocks into renewable diesel, renewable components of other transportation fuels, and renewable fuel gas through the use of existing refinery process units.
The project has the potential to produce 680 million gallons of renewable diesel, renewable gasoline, and sustainable jet fuel annually. The plant will eventually produce more than 800 million gallons a year of renewable fuels, making it the world’s largest facility of its kind.
