Escher Process Modules, a Dutch engineering and fabrication firm, has bagged a contract for the design and delivery of five flare systems for the Liwa Plastics Industries Complex (LPIC) project in Suhar, Oman.
The delivery of the flares is scheduled for mid-October 2017. The flares to be designed and delivered, will be supported by two derrick structures.
Three of the flares will be supported by one common derrick structure with a height of 170m while the other two flares will be supported by one common derrick structure with a height of 100m.
Each derrick is equipped with a (multiple) retractable gas riser system. This system offers an operational advantage allowing one flare tip or riser to be removed for maintenance or inspection while the other flares remain in operation.
“We are proud that we have won this contract and that we are part of this sophisticated project,” says Robbert Schirmer, account manager at Escher.
“Our track record of more than 50 years with derrick supported flare systems contributed to a competitive design. With this design we were able to secure the order award for this project,” he added.
