Dresser-Rand Bringing Control Panels To Kuwait Refinery
Dresser-Rand Group Inc. announced an agreement with the Kuwait National Petroleum Co. (KNPC) to produce 45 control panels for installation at the Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery in Kuwait.
The 45 panels will control a broad range of refinery compressors and pumps, only eight of which are Dresser-Rand equipment.
Dresser-Rand also provided control panels to the Mina Ahmadi Refinery in 2007. This latest order is expected to be delivered in stages throughout this year, with the panels expected for installation next year.
The Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery, built in 1949, is located about 45 km south of Kuwait City on the Arabian Gulf. It started with a refining capacity of 25 000 bpd and supplied the local market with gasoline, kerosene and diesel. Over the years, the refinery evolved, with a capacity exceeding 415 000 bpd. It covers a total area of more than 10.5 million m.
