Urduliz, January 30th 2017. The LOINTEK plant in the Port of Bilbao is running at full capacity a year and a half following its official opening in 2015, with orders in from three continents. It is currently manufacturing a series of oil-salts heat exchangers for South Africa, reactors and columns for Peru, a urea reactor for Uzbekistan and a waste heat recovery boiler for Egypt.
Since the plant’s opening it has shipped a fractionating column, three water-tube boilers and a waste heat recovery boiler for heat recovery steam generation, all destined for the Mexican market. Added to this list of equipment is another which is now ready for delivery to Chile.
The LOINTEK plant in the Port of Bilbao was officially opened in 2015 and boasts a 6,000-square metre surface area with possibility of an extension to 54,000. This new industrial unit has various advantages when it comes to handling large-scale equipment without weight or volume limitations on market requirements.
The fractionating column already delivered measured 9 metres in diameter, 81 metres long and weighed 1,054 tonnes.
The port installations are also logistically advantageous, being 50 metres from the berth for the ship that transports LOINTEK’s products. With departure to destination from a port such as Bilbao, which belongs to the network of international shipping lanes, the business manages to strengthen its position as a key supplier incorporating design, engineering, manufacture and delivery. LOINTEK is the leader in the design and manufacture of large industrial equipment with in-house technology capable of working at high pressures and temperatures.
