Recently Larsen & Toubro assigned ESI Eurosilo to the design and delivery of two Eurosilos that will serve as a logistic link between production and shipping at the Orpic refinery in Sohar, Oman. The proven performance in coal storage made the Eurosilo the best option for pet coke.
Orpic is one of Oman’s largest and most rapidly growing businesses in the Middle East oil industry.
The remarkable integration of refinery and plant operations, together with ambitious growth plans, has positioned Orpic as one of the industry’s most forward-thinking companies.
Following the strong commitment to safety and sustainability of Orpic, the contractor Larsen & Toubro, chose the Eurosilo system for the storage of green coke. Also the very limited space was decisive. Two silos of 42,000 m3 each, will streamline the logistic flow between the continuous production of pet coke and the periodic loading of transport ships at the nearby port. Therefore the filling rate of the silos amounts up to 80 tph, while the reclaim amounts up to 1,040 tph. The 3D impression shows the positioning of the silos including four truck loading lanes.
The main criteria to select a Eurosilo storage system are:
- Minimum footprint
- No dust emission
- No segregation
- Well proven fire protection system
- High degree of automation.
