Technip has been awarded a lump sum contract to supply its proprietary technology, detailed engineering and procurement services for a reformer for a hydrogen plant in Turkey, reported Trade Arabia.

The reformer will produce 160,000 Nm3/h(1) of hydrogen product and high quality export steam.

Stan Knez, president, Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology, commented: “We are delighted to continue our involvement with this project and see that the application of Technip’s proprietary technology is increasing our global footprint in refinery applications.”

According to Business Wire the reformer project will be executed by Technip’s office in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands, which specializes in hydrogen technology.

The grassroots refinery is foreseen to come on-stream in 2018.

The plant itself will be located near the STAR Aegean Refinery to be built in Izmir, Aliaga, Turkey.
