October 2005 is remembered by EMCO for the awarding of the first ever equipment to be delivered in Oceania and for the consolidation of the cooperation with FOSTER WHEELER ENERGY LTD, based on the UK. The Project was the prefabrication of a Waste Heat recovery Unit for WOODSIDE ENERGY LTD, Karratah- Australia. The main scope of work, in addition to the detail engineering, raw materials procurement, prefabrication and refractory/insulation lining consisted in a modularization of various modules where we had to perform the finally assembly and testing activities in a port area to avoid road transports because they were unfeasible due to the huge dimensions of the modules. The manufacturing activities were complimented by both Owner and Client and, for this, we have been awarded a second similar unit that it is planned to be completed on March 2009.
In the 2007 EMCO have the chance to participate into the PRODUCT QUALITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECT for the Bangchak Petroleum Public Company Limited in Bangkok, Thailand. The Project was awarded from CTCI (THAILAND) COMPANY LIMITED, a subsidiary of CTCI TAIWAN, and it consisted of the detail engineering, raw materials procurement, prefabrication, modularization and erection of three fired heaters. The fired heaters are specifically a Product Fractionators Feed Heater, a Recycle Gas Heater and a VDU Charge Heater. The prefabrications activities, inclusive of trial assembly of the major components, were carried out in strictly sequence with the erection requirements in such way to minimize as much as possible the erection time frame. The critical and heavy components erections have been performed with a main crane of 500 tons capacity. EMCO successful participation on the Project was implemented by the award of two additional contracts such as the erection of a TW Reformer and the erection of the piping related to the areas of the above equipment. The overall Project Mechanical Completion was achieved on November 2008.
On June 2008 EMCO have shipped to Brazil one of the biggest heater package ever prefabricated in Thailand. It was part of the continuous and fruitful cooperation with LINDE IMPIANTI ITALIA S.p.A. having as Owner PETROBRAS/TOYO ENGINEERING CORPORATION. The package was composed by a Straight Run Naphtha Heater and by two Delayed Coking Heaters. The main scope of work was inclusive of detail engineering, raw materials procurement, prefabrication, modularizations, trial assembly and refractory/insulation lining. The Owner and the Client congratulated EMCO for the easy and fast erection without any problems related to the equipment manufacture.
