Marelli Motori will supply electrical generators to Al-Zour (ZOR), one of the world’s largest oil-refining plants currently being built in Kuwait. The new Al-Zour refinery will account for 43% of the country's refining capacity and will be the largest in the Middle East producing 615.000 barrels per day.
The refinery will supply low sulfur fuel to the local power plants, significantly reducing pollutant emissions.
"We are starting off with 20 large Medium Voltage units specifically designed to fit the emergency gen-sets supplied to the Al-Zour plant through our customer IML Impianti " explained Dario Cattin, the Marelli Motori General Manager in charge of the area.
"This project is particularly important to us because manufacturing generators which are to be installed in hazardous areas is something we feel very proud about. These products are totally customised to the final application requirements, and we were able to win this contract due to our KNPC official vendor registration. Al-Zour will be one of the largest oil refineries in the world when it becomes operational in 2018".
Reliability and performance are key factors when designing products aimed to Oil & Gas applications, and once again Marelli Motori has been selected as the preferred partner for installations where safety and reliability matter the most. Our customer IML Impianti supplied the complete generator sets to KNPC.
