Dave Hill, John Crane’s vice-president of first fit sales and projects, said, “We are proud to be entrusted with this large project and support strengthening Kuwait’s refining sector.”

The deal was signed with a joint venture between JGC Corporation, SK Engineering & Construction and GS Engineering & Construction, that is managing a US$4.8bn portion of the Clean Fuels Project.

“As a leader in energy services, we believe it is part of our responsibility to provide the advanced technology needed by our customers to improve reliability in their operations, while meeting the highest standards of commitment to the environment,” Hill added.

The KNPC Clean Fuels Project aims to increase the combined daily production of the Mina Al-Ahmadi and Mina Abdulla refineries, while also improving their energy efficiency, reducing CO2 emissions and improving the quality of hydrocarbon production to meet international standards.
