India, HPCL to Receive Heavy Equipment to Revamp Visakh Refinery



Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd (HPCL) previously had announced to expand and modernize its 166,700-b/d Vishakhapatnam refinery in Andhra Pradesh. As part of the revamping of the project, the company will be receiving heavy equipment ahead of schedule which will be installed at the site.

An 1885-tonne hydrocracker reactor was completed by Larsen & Toubro Ltd., which will be delivered to HPCL for the Visakh refinery modernization project (VRMP). The completed hydrocracker reactor is also now the heaviest in India.

Larsen and Toubro said that the hydrocracker reactor will be joined by numerous others which will weigh collectively more than 2,0000 tonnes. The other hydrocracker reactors are still being manufactured for the residue-upgradation plant portion of the VRMP.

HPCL had previously awarded a contract to Larsen & Toubro Lt. subsidiary L&T Hydrocarbon engineering Ltd to deliver services on a 61,300-b/d full-conversion hydrocracker to be added as part of the VRMP. The services will include the delivery of engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning services.

Power generation

Turkey, Turkey Sets a New Hydroelectric Power Generation Record

A new daily record was set in hydroelectric power generation by Turkey. According to Taner Ercömert, general manager of Limak Holding-Energy Generation Group, power generation hit more than 366.7 million kilowatt-hours, generating around 46% of Turkey's total power generation on April 16th. He said, "The total contribution of renewables in Turkey's daily electricity generation on the same day was more than 60 percent,"

Turkey has been increasing the generation of power through renewables gradually to maximize the use of domestic and renewable resources. Ercömert further stated that although hydropower's generation of electricity is about 40 percent in Turkey, it still accounts for close to 32 % of the country's power generation.

He added, "This is a historical record, which means that this number is the highest daily hydroelectric power generation since the 1950s. There is a 120 percent increase in water levels at reservoirs this month compared to April 2018, which helped increase the capacity of power generation from hydroelectric."

United States of America, Duke Energy to Develop Six Solar Power Projects in North Carolina


Duke Energy will be producing six utility-scale solar power projects in North Carolina as part of the 14 solar projects among the state's Competitive Procurement of Renewable Energy (CPRE) program.

According to the Accion Group, an energy industry consultant, the accumulative costs of all 14 projects could be as much as USD $772.5 million. Duke Energy said that its own projects could cost as much as USD $ 404 million to build. The company's projects could generate about 270 MW and is expected online near the end of 2020.

All 14 installations in total will represent a little more than 600MW of generation capacity. Along with solar generation, two other projects will include battery storage. After the completion of the projects, Duke will own or operate more than 40 solar farms in North Carolina.

Senior vice president and president of Duke Energy Renewables & Business Development, Rob Caldwell said in a news release, "As solar energy expands in the Carolinas, the competitive bidding process will lead to better prices and more geographic diversity of projects. This will enhance Duke Energy's efforts to promote a cleaner energy mix at lower prices for customers."

United States of America, Halliburton Announces Offshore Exploration Contract with Shell

Halliburton Company has announced a contract with Shell in Brazil's Campos and Santos Basins for post-salt development and pre-salt exploration. The contract will see Halliburton provide drilling services to increase efficiency by offering multiple products and technologies.
