Best available proprietary technology for produced coke downloading and dewatering
Delayed Coking environmental mitigation

The project is related to a refinery unit upgrading in the Gdansk refinery, in the framework of the EFRA (Effective Refining) Project. The contract includes the implementation of a Delayed Coking Unit (DCU), a Coker Naphtha Hydrotreating Unit (CMHU), a Hydrogen Production Unit (HPU) licensed by KT, together with ancillary units in the premises of the Gdansk refinery. The scope of the contract entails the implementation of the best available technology for produced downloading and dewatering coke. This technology is regarded as a breakthrough approach to the Delayed Coking environmental impact mitigation. The presence of KT in Poland has been strengthened by the award granted by Grupa Lotos – related to EPC activities for the execution of a Hydrowax Vacuum Distillation (HVD), which will be integrated in the Gdanksk refinery. It is part of the EFRA capital project, aimed at improving output efficiency of the complex. Grupa Lotos is one of the largest refining companies in Poland, engaged in the extraction and processing of crude oil, as well as in the wholesale and retail of refined petroleum products.
