Improve plant efficiency, lower maintenance costs, simplify operations and enhance plant safety

Our well-proven hydrogen production unit design has been continuously updated and improved to deliver the highest reliability of any reforming unit on the market. We license hydrogen production units based on heritage Foster Wheeler technology, which is supported by an in-house process design package.

Hydrogen is one of the most important utilities, especially in the downstream refining sector. It is used for hydrocracking and hydrotreating complexes ensuring the production of high-grade fuels in accordance with the most recent and stringent environmental regulations.

Our technology has been selected for more than 120 hydrogen and synthesis gas plants worldwide, with a total installed capacity of more than 3.5 million Nm3/h of hydrogen. We have a wide experience base, with feedstocks ranging from natural gas to naphtha, and plant capacities ranging in size from 3,000 to over 200,000 Nm3/h.

Unique reformer design

Our unique Terrace Wall™ reforming furnace is characterised by a firing arrangement and sloped-wall radiant section design that together enable long catalyst tube life (often in excess of 100,000 hours) and deliver the flexibility to extend a reformer's operating envelope. This often allows production of hydrogen in excess of the unit’s design capacity, which may in turn deliver additional economic benefits.

Our reforming units can operate with ultra-low-NOx burners to meet tightening environmental emission standards worldwide.We can therefore extend our support developing detailed engineering, delivery of materials and construction, and a wide range of aftermarket activities like training to operators, assessment studies for existing hydrogen unit and hydrogen network, troubleshooting, unit performance monitoring, and CFD analysis.
