Aggreko completes 25MW temperature control project

Aggreko plc, global leader in providing temporary power generation and temperature control services has undertaken the Middle East's largest temperature control project to date, providing a 25.2MW Chiller/cooling tower package to the EQUATE Petrochemical Company during a scheduled shutdown and maintenance at their petrochemical plant in Kuwait.

Established in 1995, EQUATE produces polyethylene and ethylene glycol at its petrochemical plant located in the Shuaiba Industrial Area of Kuwait.

When a 30 day shutdown for maintenance was scheduled for EQUATE's Shuaiba plant, a number of operations such as the Air Separation Plant (ASP) were required to run. These operations normally use the existing sea water system for process cooling. Since this system would not be running during the shutdown, EQUATE approached Aggreko to offer an alternative cooling system, allowing the Air Separation Plant and other important operations to continue during the shutdown.

Aggreko supplied a 25.2 MW cooling package consisting of chillers, cooling towers and extensive hosing and other ancillaries. Installed seamlessly into the existing process cooling system at the plant, the Aggreko chiller/cooling tower package provided approximately 20% more cooling capacity than was actually required, ensuring sufficiently chilled water no matter what the weather condition.

To operate the 25.2 MW chiller/cooling tower package, Aggreko provided a 4 MW / 415V power generation package as well as specialised service and maintenance engineers on site 24 hours a day throughout the entire shutdown project.

Brian Hodgson, Aggreko Area Manager for the Northern Gulf speaking on the project's successful completion said,

We are extremely proud of our dedicated team in Kuwait, Dubai and around the Aggreko network who worked tirelessly to successfully complete our largest temperature control project in the Middle East yet."

'The successful completion of this landmark project reinforces our position as market leader in this region. Aggreko is one of the Middle East's only power and temperature control providers with the capacity, skill set and relevant industry experience to carry out a project of this scale and complexity,' he concluded.

'EQUATE was looking for a complete temperature control solution and Aggreko was able to provide us with a package that allowed for uninterrupted work to continue at our plant during the duration of the project,' said Mr Jamal Al Enaizi, Utilities Production Leader, from EQUATE.

'The shutdown of our Shuaiba petrochemical plant was quite a challenge given the time frame and conditions on site. We found Aggreko to be the only power and temperature control provider in Kuwait with the capability and prior experience to confidently take on a project of this nature. The company's ability to mobilise equipment quickly to our site was also a contributing factor when selecting Aggreko,' Mr Jamal Al Enaizi said.
