Unit Birwelco commences gas conversion project for Eastham Refinery in Ellesmere Port

Unit Birwelco has undertaken a front-end engineering design project for Eastham Refinery at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire.

The project includes the modification of a number of existing Birwelco fired heaters at the facility to convert them from oil fired to natural gas fired units. The development works also include the replacement of fired heater burner management systems and fuel skids, together with natural gas handling and distribution requirements throughout the facility.

Following completion of the FEED study by Unit Birwelco in early 2012 and full project sanction being subsequently granted, development works will commence at Unit Birwelco’s Halesowen site during the second quarter of 2012.
