Technip has been awarded by Total an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services contract, worth approximately €90 million, for a new kerosene hydrodesulphurization* unit. This unit will be built in the Leuna refinery, located near Leipzig, Germany.

The contract covers the implementation of a new hydrotreating unit at low pressure. The unit will produce 120 tons per hour of kerosene and light diesel oil, in compliance with the German light heating oil sulphur specification of 50 parts per million.

Technip's operating center in Düseldorf (Germany) will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in October 2009.

This award marks a new step in the collaboration between Technip and Total in Germany, for whom Technip has already carried out the basic engineering for this project and is currently performing engineering, procurement and construction services in the Leuna refinery.
