The Fuel Refinery Extension (FRE) Revamp at the Hindustan Petroleum Corp.
Ltd. (HPCL) refinery in Mumbai, India, removed existing hydraulic limitations and
optimized the crude preheat circuit, providing the flexibility to process various
crudes. The project included design and construction of a culvert and cable
trench to give forklifts easy access to a congested area.
HPCL used S TAAD.Pro to check the loads on the pipe rack and accurately
design the pipe rack for all the loads. The project helped HPCL remove existing
hydraulic limitations and optimize the crude preheat circuit. The company
shortened the design cycle for the structure, resulting in higher productivity and
a time savings of 25 percent.
Koksoprojekt Sp. z o.o.
Coke Oven Gas Desulfurization
Kosice, Czech Republic
Koksoprojekt’s coke oven gas desulfurization project at a coke oven gas
process plant in Kosice, Czech Republic, is composed of two units: an ammonia
scrubbing liquor stripping plant and a sulfur plant. The goal of the project was to
design two units and make the manufacturing process as clean as possible.
With the use of AutoPLANT and software support by Centrum Systemów
Softdesk, the average time savings for each project was 50 percent. Project
documentation is now almost free from errors, and there is no clash in most of
the plant piping systems or the structural part of the project.
