First equipment of the year dispatched from Oltenița

The Secondary Reformer shipped from our river port in Oltenița on 24 January 2021 is Walter Tosto WTB’s first shipment of the year.

The cargo is now directed to Constanta seaport and, from there, it will reach by ship the End User’s petrochemical plant in Giza, Egypt.

The item weights about 139 tons and measures approximately 16 meters long by 6 meters high. It is a jacketed equipment, meaning that it uses a “jacket” through which a fluid is circulated to permit the uniform exchange of heat between the fluid circulating in it and the walls of the vessel.

For the manufacturing of this equipment we performed Internal refractory casting for the 16 air inlet nozzles caps and for the bottom gas inlet nozzle.

New Hydrofining Reactor successfully completed

A new Hydrofining Reactor, completed in just five months, is now ready for delivery.

This item of 11 meters long, 4 meters wide and 4 meters high will replace an existing component of the Petrobrazi Refinery in Ploiesti, at about 65 km from our facility in Bucharest.

The Hydrofining Reactor is the heart of the plant, since a possible damage or lock can cause an interruption of the whole refinery, with subsequent significant financial loss for the company.

This job was very challenging for us because it was commissioned to the company Griro S.A. before it was acquired by Walter Tosto WTB.

Our team demonstrated high commitment to assure the continuity of the manufacturing activities and to respect the delivery time.

Our customer Petrobrazi Refinery was very satisfied for this accomplishment and congratulated with us for “the excellent job also considering the situation of the reactor in 2019 at former Griro”.

We are pleased for receiving their appreciation letter and for having collaborated with a great company as Petrobrazi Refinery. Their satisfaction is our pride!
