- Tüpraş’s one of the most critical packages – maintenance and repair works of furnaces – is trusted to Prokon
- A new challenging contract to recognise Prokon as a reliable solution partner
Prokon Makina, Insaat, Imalat, Montaj, Sanayi ve Ticaret Ltd (Prokon Türkiye), Prokon’s subsidiary, is pleased to announce that it has signed a new contract with Türkiye Petrol Rafinerileri A.S. (Tüpraş) to provide maintenance and repair works of furnaces.
The contract takes in the maintenance and repair works of the furnaces in Unit 5 (Crude Oil Unit) and 21 (Naphta Hydrotreater/Desulphurization) of Tüpraş Izmit Refinery.
Two crude oil furnaces, including their pre-heaters, one vacuum furnace including its air preheater, one sour gas incinerator and its stack will be serviced during the shutdown period. The shutdown period is expected to start in the beginning of October, 2022, and it is planned to be completed in 30 days.
Vugar Samadli, CEO Nobel Energy said: “Prokon has successfully delivered on all key aspects of the previous, strategic contract with Tüpraş, Türkiye’s downstream giant. Trusting one of the most critical maintenance and repair works packages in the company’s yearly shut down programme underlines Prokon’s approval as a reliable solution provider.
I am confident that Prokon will remain a trusted solution partner for Tüpraş’s future undertakings by committing to deliver high quality results both for the existing and prospect campaigns”.
As part of the current campaign, Prokon will deliver blinding, dismantling, cleaning, retubing, reassembly, replacement of various parts of the furnaces, which at the peak of the works will see around 110 people – some 90 pipe fitters/erectors and 16 alloy welders – mobilized to the site.
