INNOVATIVE PLANT IN EUROPE

higher quality and energy-efficient fuels

KT has been awarded an EPC Lump Sum-Turn Key contract by LOTOS Oil, concerning the expansion of the Gdansk Refinery aimed at improving its crude processing capability as well as ensuring higher quality and energy-efficient fuels.
The contract relates to the execution of a hydrocracking unit (Hydrocracked Base Oil plant) with associated logistic facilities, which will allow the production of Group II base oils.
This innovative plant will be the second one in Europe and will be capable of treating better performing base oil groups, with a lower environmental impact.
International environmental regulations are driving the need for higher quality base oils, especially in the automotive sector, where engine oil manufacturers are responding to increasing demand for low sulphur and energy-efficient products.
