ORLEN Południe is to invest in an installation for the production of organic glycol. As part of the project, Dutch engineering company Gpi was awarded the contract for the supply of 15 storage tanks for glycerine and ‘green’ glycol. The installation is the second of its kind in Europe and the first such one in Poland. 

Gpi – together with the contractor, TECHNIK Polska, and the operating company, Biproraf – will build 7 duplex stainless steel tanks on location at the customer’s plant in Trzebinia (Poland) and a further 8 tanks at its own factory. 

It said the 15 storage tanks have the key requirement of maintaining the temperature of the stored substances. The tanks have been designed by engineers at Gpi in compliance with the requirements of the Polish and European PL-EN-14015 standard.

The new installation will start production next year. With this investment, ORLEN Południe ultimately aims to satisfy three-quarters of demand for glycol in Poland.
