Steloy Castings recently supplied internal support components to PetroChina, the largest petrochemical company in China, for the addition of 14 furnaces to their plant in Jieyang, Guangdong, China contributing to the PetroChina Refinery Expansion Project to increase capacity for the production of petroleum and petrochemical products.
Foster Wheeler USA was awarded the tender as the primary contractor for this large project in 2012. As a regular supplier to Foster Wheeler and having worked with them on high-profile projects such as the Ecopetrol Refinery Project, Steloy was given a position on PetroChina’s approved vendor’s list and was subsequently awarded the contract based on price, quality and service delivery.
The scope of Steloy’s supply for the project included the main structural components for the interior of the furnaces, including tube sheets, supports and brackets, all forming a critical basis for the successful completion of the project. Strict requirements for quality standards and technical performance called for a supplier that could not only provide the technical capabilities and capacity to handle complex projects, but also the ability to certify quality through testing and certification.
The new furnaces currently under construction are set to increase production volumes and improve product quality, helping to further entrench PetroChina’s position as one of the largest oil companies in the world.
Recognised for its excellent product quality and performance reliability, Steloy’s state-of-the-art foundry facilities in Bronkhorstspruit and Krugersdorp, South Africa are well-equipped to deliver a wide range of castings in most material types to the highest standards. Steloy is also backed by an extensive portfolio of successful projects in the gas and petrochemical sector, consistently ensuring operational excellence to meet global standards for high quality and reliable delivery times.
