Strategic alliance with Sandvik on Sulphur
Shell Global Solutions International B.V. and AB Sandvik Process Systems have today announced a cooperation agreement, designed to enable the provision of total sulphur technology solutions to their respective clients, particularly in refinery-wide projects.
Refiners globally contend with an increasing amount of sulphur on site, as a result of heavier, more sour crudes coming into refineries, combined with increasingly stringent product specifications and emissions legislation. Shell Global Solutions is committed to enable refiners to handle sulphur in any form through its Sulphur Technology Platform, and Sandvik’s expertise in providing solutions for the solidification and handling of solid sulphur complements Shell Global Solution’s own substantial experience, capabilities and technologies in regard to sulphur management solutions.
Sandvik’s Rotoform pastillation system enables refiners to leverage the sulphur extracted from crude feed stocks to produce a solidified sulphur product that can be handled, transported and stored. The process delivers high throughput capacity with lower environmental impact, and, through the provision of multiple lines that can be operated in parallel, provides a high level of flexibility. In addition to demonstrating low friability, excellent resistance to impact abrasion and optimal flow characteristics, the sulphur pastilles are also easy to re-melt.
Both Shell Global Solutions and Sandvik are of the firm belief that the alliance will offer refiners more flexibility in the management and handling of sulphur on site.
“Through this alliance, Shell Global Solutions is further demonstrating its commitment to providing innovative technology solutions that enable refiners to handle sulphur in any form. Sandvik’s expertise and unique Rotoform technology sets the standard for pastillised sulphur production within the refining industry”, said Dr Dave Clark, General Manager, Process Licensing, Shell Global Solutions International B.V.
The relationship between the two companies extends back more than 25 years when Shell became one of the first companies to make use of Sandvik’s Rotoform sulphur solidification technology, installing it at Jumping Pound, west of Calgary, Canada.
“This cooperation led to the installation of 46 Rotoform lines at Shell Canada’s Shantz plant,” explains Hans-Georg Pohle, Sales Manager, Sandvik Process Systems. “and this remains the largest installation of its kind in the world. The joint expertise gained through this and other projects makes our alliance agreement a logical progression.”
