Dangote Oil Refining Company order two compressor trains from MAN Diesel & Turbo

With a double-digit million dollar order volume, Germany-based MAN Diesel & Turbo will deliver two compressor trains to Nigerian Dangote Oil Refining Company, to be employed in the company’s refinery in the capital of Lagos.

Dangote Corporation is currently building Africa’s largest refinery in the Lekki Free Trade Zone of Lagos, investing a total of around 12 billion US dollar. "This one we are building will satisfy 100% of the fuel needs of Nigeria," so Alhaji Aliko Dangote, President and CEO of the Dangote Group. The new building should enable the country of Nigeria as Africa’s biggest crude oil producer to also raise its processing capacities, finally getting more independent from imported fuels.

Wayne Jones, Member of the Executive Board and Chief Sales Officer of MAN Diesel & Turbo: "This is a milestone project and will have a huge impact on the economy of not only Nigeria but the whole of the West African region. We are very proud to be a part of this project and gladly offer our equipment and technological expertise in order to help to make the Dangote refinery not only Africa’s biggest but also one of the most efficient operations on the continent."

Sohail A. Khan, Managing Director of MAN Diesel & Turbo in Nigeria: "This refinery new building is underlining the long-term growth perspective Nigeria and the region of West Africa have. We are here to serve customers with high-performance technology for the oil and gas industry, process industry or the ever-rising need for efficient power generation."

The highly efficient machinery trains from MAN Diesel & Turbo each consist of an axial compressor driven by a steam turbine with about 30 MW power. Delivered with a comprehensive auxiliary package, they will come into operation for the refinery process of Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC), thereby supporting the production of fuel.

MAN Diesel & Turbo convinced here with proven and reliable technology, together with its extensive expertise in the refinery sector. The order also comprises erection and commissioning of the machinery trains, being developed and build at the company’s Turbomachinery technology site in Germany. Delivery will take place in the course of 2018, while commissioning of the whole refinery is planned for the year 2019.

Beside Nigeria as the largest national economy, MAN Diesel & Turbo holds subsidiaries also in other countries on the African continent. With 250 employees across various sales and service sites, regional workshops and a pool of field service engineers, the company serves customers that are mainly active in the oil and gas industry, the power generation business or the process industry. The company’s history in Africa dates back to the 1950s, when the first engines for power generation were delivered to the countries of Mali and Senegal.
