Neste Jacobs' NExSAT technology to be implemented at the production site of Haltermann Carless in Germany
Neste Jacobs, a global solution provider of high-quality technology, engineering and project services and Haltermann Carless, a well-established HCS Group brand and leading provider of high value specialty hydrocarbons, have agreed to plan and engineer an upgrade and expansion of the Haltermann Carless' production site in Speyer, Germany. The parties have also signed a Letter of Intent for the EPCM services to be provided by Neste Jacobs.
A versatile hydrogenation unit, based on Neste Jacobs' NExSAT technology, will enable Haltermann Carless to process larger feedstock volumes and respond to the increasing demand for very low aromatic oils and specialty hydrocarbon chemicals, thus opening a wider range of possibilities for its customers. Neste Jacobs' proprietary NExSAT technology is developed to produce high-quality hydrocarbon products that meet today's stringent standards for low impurity, aromatic, and olefin content.
"This investment is an important milestone in implementing our Strategy 2020 by bringing next generation technology to our production sites for the next chapter of the HCS Group's development. We are convinced that Neste Jacobs is the right engineering partner to implement this state-of-the-art technology in production. We are pleased to work with Neste Jacobs on this project and we trust their excellent project management skills and in-depth process knowledge to complete this project successfully", says Dr. Uwe Nickel, Chief Executive Officer, HCS Group.
"We are very excited to be the preferred partner for Haltermann Carless' next generation technology project. This is yet another great example of how partnership and vision can be successfully combined with our abilities to provide and adapt our top-notch process technologies to market demands. NExSAT technology is a flexible aromatic and olefin hydrogenation technology for high-quality hydrocarbon products", says Jarmo Suominen, Chief Executive Officer of Neste Jacobs.
