Bilfinger’s services for the scheduled turnaround at the Finnish refinery in Porvoo were both diverse and efficient. About 500 specialists from all over Europe conducted extensive welding, insulation and assembly works during the project. Every step was carefully planned in advance in order to ensure that the facility’s downtime was kept to a minimum.
One of the more special achievements was the replacement of the toppart of a crude oil distillation tower which weighed 100 tons, had a diameter of 7.5 meters and a height of 45 meters. The customer also had strict requirements in place in terms of occupational safety. Bilfinger was the first service provider to be presented by Neste Oil with the newly-created Safety Award for outstanding health, safety, environment and quality (HSEQ) performance.
