Paul Wurth has been awarded recent orders for engineering services, the supply of coke oven machines as well as of SOPRECO valves to be implemented at two new Jumbo coke oven batteries of stamp charging type built by the end customer Xinxing Ductile Pipe Co., Ltd. in Handan City, Hebei Province, China.
Paul Wurth will provide engineering services for the construction of two new stamp-charged coke oven batteries, featuring 69 ovens each with an oven height of 6.73m and designed for a gross production of 1.940 million tons of coke per year.
This project is part of the Chinese government’s environmental programme to reduce emissions generated by coking plants. The batteries’ environmental performance will be significantly enhanced by the installation of SOPRECOsystem for Single Oven PREssure Control and reduction of fugitive emissions.
Start-up of the plant is expected in the third quarter of 2021.
