Port of Ortona, Italy. The last 4 Hydrocracker Reactors belonging to an important order for the supply of 8 reactors, all of the same type, have been sent.

The components measure 21 meters in length and over 5 meters in diameter, with a unit weight of over 340 tons each.

The reactors were commissioned from Walter Tosto SpA by one of the largest Oil & Gas player in the world, to be installed in the Riyadh refinery, Saudi Arabia.

The first two items were manufactured in the production facilities in Chieti (Italy) and shipped last October from Ortona. Other two reactors, manufactured at Walter Tosto WTB headquarters in Bucharest, were shipped from the port of Constanta, Romania, after a month from the first shipment.

This project was very demanding and challenging due to particularly stringent customer requirements“, explains Ercole Fasciani, Project Manager of Walter Tosto SpA: “Thanks to the great commitment of our team, we were able to face all the critical points and to satisfy the Customer’s requests on schedule. Furthermore, the project significantly contributed to strengthening our operational, qualitative and commercial skills“.
