Total has selected Técnicas Reunidas for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of a new Gasoil Hydrodesulphurization Unit (HDS) for its Normandy Refinery. This contract has been awarded under the EPC Lump Sum Turn Key model and it is worth around € 100 million.

The Unit, with a design capacity of 3.840 t/d, is designed to produce a desulphurized diesel with just 8ppm weight sulphur, and will be in operation in 2013.

This unit is a main part of the ambitious Total´s Normandy Refinery RN 2012 Project, consisting in adapting the Refinery to the future market conditions. The project is committed to maintaining a significant share of local employment.

The HDS project is a grass roots project to be developed within the refinery limits. The site constrains of a refinery in operation have been fully taken into consideration.

TR has a large experience in hydrodesulphurization international projects with more than 30 worldwide references and currently 7 units under construction, including one in Saudi Arabia for Total/Saudi Aramco.

This award reflects the trust Total shows in TR capabilities and the competitiveness of TR in the challenging west European refining market.
