AEG Power Solutions to secure power for major petrochemical plants in Oman

AEG Power Solutions, a global provider of power electronic conversion systems and solutions for industrial power supplies and renewable energy applications, today announced that it has been selected to provide AC and DC UPS to secure the power supply for a Polyethylene plant (HDPE/LLDPE) and a Polypropylene plant (PP) owned by Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company SAOC - Orpic.

One of the primary engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors for this petrochemical complex in Oman is Tecnimont S.p.A., the main subsidiary of Maire Tecnimont Group, industrial leader in the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical industry, headquartered in Milan. Tecnimont has chosen AEG Power Solutions to provide the complete power supply solution for one package belonging to Orpic’s Liwa Plastic Industries Complex (LPIC) project, consisting of both AC and DC UPS redundant systems.

Tecnimont selected a combination of AEG Power Solutions' Protect 8 UPS and Protect RCS rectifier (specified as TPRe three-phase rectifier model) which have proven track records in securing power for critical industrial applications. AEG Power Solutions has also provided customized by-pass panels, as well as Ni-Cd batteries and moulded case circuit breaker (MCCB) boxes for battery protection. AEG Power Solutions provided its power supply expertise to Tecnimont during the technical project analysis and clarification, helping to finalize the project and to propose possible solutions.

"Having started to build a relationship with AEG Power Solutions during the procurement process, we could see that they had the technical excellence and experience required – as well as the best product range" says Paolo Mondo, Maire Tecnimont Group Procurement VP. "We were confident that AEG Power Solutions was the right choice to provide these mission-critical UPS systems".

"Orpic’s Liwa Plastic Industries Complex (LPIC) project – currently under construction in the Sultanate of Oman - is a major project that places tough demands on the UPS and other electrical systems to operate in a harsh environment" says Alberto Dall'Asta, Managing Director of AEG PS in Italy. 1 "We are delighted that Tecnimont has recognized again how our industrial product range can meet its requirements for realizing a reliable and flexible solution" says Daniela Antenori, Key Account Manager for Tecnimont.

Global project scope includes engineering services, equipment and material supplies as well as construction activities up to testing, start-up and test performance of a polyethylene production system with a capacity of 880,000 tons per year, a polypropylene (PP) plant with a capacity of 300,000 tons per year.The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
