$13bn refinery owned by Dangote, takes delivery of electricity generating equipment

A refinery belonging to Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man, has taken delivery of a heat recovery steam generator.

A heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) is a heat exchanger, used in power stations, to recover heat from the exhaust hot gases coming from a gas turbine. It produces steam used to drive a steam turbine that generates electricity.

The refinery, which has a refining capacity of 650,000 barrels per day, is scheduled to be completed late 2020; a later date that early 2020 earlier announced.

According to Devakumar Edwin, Dangote Group’s executive officer, the delay is due to difficulty in importing products.

This difficulty, he explained, is caused by gridlock at the Apapa ports.
However, Devakumar said the tank farms at the refinery would be used as a depot to warm-up operations.

Upon completion, the 650,000 barrels per day capacity refinery will be the largest in the world.
During a visit to Mele Kyari, group managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dangote had said that 53% of the facility would be dedicated to petrol refining.(Thecable)
