Rueil-Malmaison, 10 october 2019

Brown Fintube France S.A., one of the group’s subsidiaries has successfully delivered 2 vertical bayonet vaporizers and hairpin heat exchangers to the Ras Tanura refinery on the east coast of Saudi Arabia.

This equipment, designed and manufactured in the group’s workshops in Thonon-les-Bains, will be installed in isomerization and Naphtha units, as part of the Clean Fuels project* that aims to modernise the operator’s principal refineries.

Weighing 12 tonnes and measuring 9,3 metres high, this vertical bayonet vaporizer is the largest ever built by the group.

This contract reinforces the position and growth of Brown Fintube France S.A. in the Middle East and is proof of the confidence placed in it by one of its most important clients, Saudi Aramco.

*A few words about the Clean Fuel project
The CFP project consists of modernising the oil company’s principal refineries. It plans to increase refining capacity and improve the development of environmentally friendly fuels by repurposing heavy products.
This project also aims to reduce CO2 emissions while also improving energy efficiency of the refineries.
