As part of a
larger project "Revitalization Waste Water Treatment Plant in Rijeka
Rafinery" Riko signed its first contract on the Croatian market. Regardless
of the strong competition of well-known names from the oil industry, Riko was
selected as the equipment supplier for the API separator at a public tender.
The contract includes the engineering, manufacture and supply of equipment, the
erection supervision and the commissioning and training of personnel operating
at INA. The equipment of API separators constitutes reconstruction and covering
of pools, in which waste oils and the processed water from the treatment
process of crude oil are collected.
Riko will supply the equipment for the separation of oil
sludge and water development covering swimming pools with advanced process
floating lids. The process of waste water treatment will allow the oil to
return to the machining process, all while the waste water is lead to the water
treatment plant and the sludge is treated appropriately.
The investment will be completed by the end of 2018, thus
harmonizing the operation of the refinery with the provisions of the European
directive on the release of hydrocarbons into the atmosphere.
