KPE’s hydrotreating experience, a natural segue to RDUs
KPE earned the Artesia RDU project through our longstanding expertise and success in the execution of conventional hydroprocessing units for the customer and others before it. In essence, our customer recognized that a renewable diesel plant is ultimately a special application of our hydroprocessing expertise and experience. We believe our prospects find value in our hydroprocessing experience summarized as follows:
- Nearly 20% of our resume of 650+ jobs are in the hydroprocessing area (>110 jobs).
- Hydrotreating experience includes all phases of project development and execution (FEL-1/2/3/4/5)
- Hydrotreating design/build experience includes licensed units and open art designs.
- Hydrotreating experience with technology licensors across the glove
- Hydrotreater experience includes low pressure units (<700 psig), high pressure units (700-1200 psig), and mild hydrocracking units (>2000 psig).
- Hydrotreating feedstocks have included light and heavy naphtha, kerosene, diesel, gas oils, lube oils, waxes, FCC gasoline, and vegetable oils.
- Hydrotreater experience includes relevant metallurgical design knowledge for the hot reactor circuit.
- Design experience includes grassroots units and revamps of existing units.
- Renewables/Biomass experience includes renewable diesel, biodiesel, and digestion.
- Additional hydroprocessing experience includes hydrogen and syngas plants.
Our project history includes the design and/or supply of various downstream processing units, including syngas process units, both “open art” designs and licensed technologies. Additionally, KPE has significant experience designing process modules, producing modular alternatives for traditional layouts, and cost-effectively transporting modules to job sites. We are confidently staffed with senior-level personnel - our average experience is 20+ years with multiple P.E. licensed staff - thereby enabling us to provide a level of creativity, productivity, and experience that is unmatched in the EPC industry.
