AMCS Corporation (AMCS) has entered into a contract to supply Grupa LOTOS, S.A. (GLSA), with an INNOVA-H2/LPG cryogenic process plant for the recovery of hydrogen, LPG, and heavy condensate from the fuel gas streams at GLSA's refinery in Gdansk, Poland. The INNOVA-H2/LPG plant will upgrade refinery streams currently sent to the fuel gas system into more valuable product streams improving profitability, reducing the need for importation of crude oil, reducing the impact of the refinery on the environment, and providing needed transportation liquid fuels to the Polish market including LPG and Gasoline.
AMCS' INNOVA-H2/LPG technology is tailored for maximum recovery of all desired products; resulting in a unique process which is simple in design, easy to operate, and has few moving parts. The end result will be a unit which affords GLSA additional profits while providing trouble-free operation for many years.
GLSA selected AMCS in a competitive bid process against some of the world's largest cryogenic plant suppliers. AMCS' scope of work is for the complete lump sum turn-key (LSTK) supply of the INNOVA-H2/LPG minimizing the complexity of the project for the refinery and allowing GLSA to contract with one entity to perform all the required work. This will be AMCS' second LSTK project in Poland within the last few years, and will further expand the company's proven European experience.
"Poland is key to our continued success in Europe; we are positively impressed by the level of professionalism and skill we encounter in dealing with Polish companies and workforce. Poland, with its strategic location, educated population, skilled workforce, and established industrial base is well on its way to prominence in Europe and to a remarkable economic future. We are fortunate to be in a position to contribute to this success story," said Ishmael Chalabi, CEO of AMCS Corporation. "We are delighted to have been chosen by GLSA one of Europe's leading refiners and energy companies for the supply of the INNOVA plant technology. LOTOS' selection of this application is in line with their demonstrated vision towards achieving both energy efficiency and responsible environmental stewardship, AMCS is happy to participate in this effort."
