MAN Diesel & Turbo has won a double-digit million dollar contract to deliver two turbomachinery trains of its ReTPac concept (refinery train package) to a refinery 450km south of Tehran, Iran, that will help the process of hydrotreating, ensuring an efficient production of ultra-low sulphur fuels
Specifically designed for refinery applications, these high-efficiency turbomachinery trains combine compressor and driver as a single-lift unit. Due to a customised design based on pre-engineered modules, the ReTPac concept allows for short delivery times.
The machinery has been ordered by Iranian EPC Nargan Company and will later be operated by Esfahan Oil Refining Company (EORC). Also, MAN PrimeServ, the MAN’s service provider, has received several spare part orders from the Iranian Oil Pipelines and Telecommunication Company, where MAN supports the client with service and upgrading of turbomachinery equipment including the Marun-Isfahan oil pipeline. This has called for the delivery of spare parts for gas turbines of the S-Series, a heritage brand of MAN Diesel & Turbo.
“These initial orders reward our efforts to re-establish relationships with Iranian partners now that the international sanctions have been lifted,” stated Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Diesel & Turbo.
“Since the first projects around seventy years ago, MAN Diesel & Turbo has delivered a three-digit number of machines and installations to the country – whether it is equipment for the oil and gas industry, for industrial production or power generation, we provided equipment for numerous branches in Iran, and we are looking forward to build upon that.”
Gaby B. Hanna, director of the company’s Turbomachinery business in Middle East/Africa and chairman of the supervisory board for MAN Iran Power, stated, “We are currently in discussion with various new and existing customers, raising our understanding of the specific challenges the Iranian businesses are facing today and enabling us to address the demand with tailor-made offers.”
