Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (IHI) and ITOCHU Corporation (ITOCHU) signed two contracts with the Algerian national oil & gas company SONATRACH for 2 boilers each (Capacity: 400 tons/hour per boiler) for 2 LNG plants. The contract is an EPC contract that includes procurement, engineering works, installation and test run supervision, and the contract amount is about 13 billion yen in total. The commercial operation start-up is expected to be at the end of 2007.

The project is to deliver the boilers to the existing LNG plants in Arzew industrial zone, suburb of Oran, second biggest city in Algeria. Two boilers will be delivered to the GL1Z plant (liquefaction capability: 8,800,000 ton/year) and the other two boilers are to be delivered to the GL2Z plant (liquefaction capability 8,800,000 ton/year).

IHI and ITOCHU supplied the LPG plant (yearly output: 6,000,000 ton) of the world's largest class to the adjoining land in the Arzew industrial area in 1982 and 1998. Also, the two companies are now constructing the large-sized seawater desalinization and power generation plant (capacity: about 88,000 m3 /day, energy output: 320,000 KW) as the first private-enterprises project in Algeria. Moreover, since IHI has many boiler delivery track records for various plants in Japan and abroad, such experience and technology has made these contracts possible.
