Renewal of flue gas valves at BAYERNOIL

During the 2020 plant turnaround – a scheduled plant shutdown to inspect, clean, repair and renew the BAYERNOIL facilities in Neustadt, Germany –, nine butterfly valves used to handle flue gas were up for replacement. They are installed in three furnaces where the product is heated up for further processing. Temperatures reach up to 600 °C.

The project was managed by SAMSON's Burgkirchen office where a suitable solution was developed and implemented. Together with an external partner, four-slat louvers automated by SAMSON PFEIFFER actuators were developed.

Diligent and on-time planning with the persons in charge at SAMSON and at BAYERNOIL were essential to the project's success. Communication channels were always open, production was started on time, inspections were performed at the manufacturer’s and all products were delivered on time: milestones in the project. The nine flue gas valves were
installed into the plant by ASE GmbH in March 2020 and have been running without any problems ever since.

BAYERNOIL Raffineriegesellschaft mbH is a refining network owned by Varo Energy GmbH (51.43 %), Rosneft Deutschland GmbH (28.57 %) and Eni Deutschland GmbH (20 %). The company operates the largest refinery in Bavaria with production sites in Vohburg and Neustadt an der Donau. The two locations are connected by 11 pipelines and work together as one unit. Every year, the approximately 780 members of staff turn around 10 million tons of crude oil into liquefied gases, fuels (mogas, jet fuel, diesel) as well as fuel oil, heating fuels and bitumen.
