OREANDA-NEWS. A complex working operation for installation of the vacuum distillation tower - the main component of CDU / VDU-6 unit was completed at the TANECO Refinery and Petrochemical Plants Complex.

The equipment manufactured by JSC "Volgogradneftemash» was delivered to Nizhnekamsk by waterway in November of the current year. Because the tower’s size and dimensions (weight - 287 t, height - 40.5 m) they had to  perform a serious logistical operation for the transportation of the tower from the Nizhnekamsk cargo berth to the construction site.

New engineering solutions were also required for construction of a 17-meter foundation, which has become a reliable pedestal for the vacuum distillation tower.

The   large-tonnage equipment installation was preceded by a serious preparatory process involving URPS of PJSC TATNEFT, JSC TANECO and OOO SOPiG, which is the executor of the installation works.
