Recently we supplied to the KNPC Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery Terminal in Kuwait. This Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery is modernized with the upgrade and expansion.
This refinery was modernized by building 29 new units at this refinery which has now become one of the world’s modern refineries in terms of both refining capacity, which exceeds 460,000 bpd and the advanced technology it employs.
The intention was to provide the local and world markets with low sulphur -content petroleum products, and to reduce dependence on gas as fuel, providing cheaper and more stable fuel to the country’s power generation plants.
At the sulphur handling terminal, the supplied units are now commissioned and ready for the first vessels to be moored.
The supply consisted of 14 Quick Release Mooring Hooks with a safe working load of 100 tons. The hooks are integrated with a Mooring Load Monitoring System. The system is also integrated with an Electrical Remote Control System. Because of the aggressive sulfur the hooks and electrical components are supplied with extra protection for against corrosion and for long duration.
For the safe berthing of the carriers the Berthing Approach System indicates the ship’s speed, distance and angle during the berthing process.
