Neste Jacobs to perform a comprehensive energy study for Unipetrol's Litvinov refinery

Technology, engineering and project management company Neste Jacobs and the leading refinery and petrochemical group Unipetrol, which constitutes an important part of the Czech industry, have signed an agreement for Neste Jacobs to perform a comprehensive energy efficiency study of Unipetrol's Litvinov oil refinery in Czech Republic.

Neste Jacobs has a longstanding experience in improving energy efficiency for oil refineries and petrochemical plants. The energy efficiency study will be performed by utilizing Neste Jacobs' proprietary NAPCON energy performance analysis, that is a unique combination of high level process know-how and modelling skills, pinch-technology, equipment expertise and automation solutions. Neste Jacobs' energy analysis with a modular approach is a globally proven solution to identify the feasible improvement potential and create a practical action plan to implement the improvements. NAPCON energy performance analysis is fully customizable according to customer needs.

The study will review existing energy consumption and production within the refinery process units. This includes pinch-analysis to identify opportunities to improve heat integration of the process. This is combined with fired heater optimization to maximize the benefits. On top of energy efficiency, the study includes waste water optimization assessment to minimize the water usage and recycling of waste water.

"We are happy to provide our extensive energy efficiency and water management knowledge in the form of an energy study for Unipetrol's refinery in Litvinov", says Jarmo Suominen, CEO of Neste Jacobs. "Our excellent project team will provide systematic study to Unipetrol to discover solutions, which are both practical and lucrative."

"Unipetrol has set an Energy Management System certified according to the ISO 50001:2011. The study is another very important step for a sustainable program in energy efficiency improvement in our company. Neste Jacobs' high technical knowledge of refinery projects and detailed process understanding convinced us to select them as our preferred partner in this project. They have good references on energy efficiency studies especially in oil refineries," says TomᚠHerink, Member of the Unipetrol Group's Board of Directors responsible for research and development.
