Vietnam Refinery Adds Cooling Towers
Spig, Arona, Italy, has been contracted to provide seawater cooling towers for the Nghi Son refinery south of Hanoi, Vietnam.
Spig will design and supply two cooling towers for the 200,000-barrel-a-day refinery. The towers will be manufactured with fiber-reinforced polyester corrosion-free material suitable for harsh environments and will feature duplex hardware and back-to-back arrangement. Each tower will process 66,550 m³/hr of seawater for a total 133,100 m³/hr.
According to Spig, the job is the largest seawater cooling towers project for this type of use. The refinery will supply the Vietnamese domestic market.
