Axens will supply a modular Prime - G+ unit to Raizen Buenos Aires Refinery

RaĂ­zen Argentina, Shell licensee, has selected Axens  for the modular supply of a FCC gasoline hydrodesulphurization unit Prime-G+ in its Buenos Aires refinery.   

RaĂ­zen Argentina is developing a modernization and expansion program for its existing 110,000 BPSD Buenos Aires refinery to meet more stringent motor fuels specifications by January 1st 2024.

Part of this program, downstream the FCC unit, a smart integrated solution based on the Prime-G+ technology was selected to upgrade the gasoline pool quality along with high performance catalysts. This 10,200 BPSD Prime-G+unit will be delivered in module to enable RaĂ­zen to execute the project in a very competitive schedule. This modular solution supplied by Axens derisks project schedule, and typically save up to 6 months while ensuring the adequate performance of the unit. This is achieved by high degree of pre-fabrication and pre-commissioning. On top of that, risks inherent to site activities, including safety, are drastically reduced using this execution strategy.
