In September 2009, the HEURTEY Group won a major contract in the Petrochemicals sector on behalf of Total Petrochemicals. This contract covers the supply of two ethylene cracking furnaces for the Gonfreville plant in Normandy and is part of a modernization project of the steam cracker during next turnaround scheduled in September 2011. Heurtey Petrochem has used technology from Shaw Energy and Chemicals (Stone & Webster) to complete this turnkey contract, which includes on-site assembly work.
Heurtey Petrochem Romania is the main detailing design office of the HEURTEY Group, fully involved in this project, with 30 engineers and technicians specialised in the mechanical design of furnaces and trained in the use of Graitec Advance Steel 3D design software.
The two furnaces, pipe rack and steel structures are prefabricated and manufactured by Beta-Heurtey, the Group's Romanian fabrication workshop.
Delivery of the furnaces is planned for July 2011.
