User Story

Project Name: Hydrotreater Unit, Hydrogen Production Unit/ROG PSA manufacturer – Kstovo Refinery

Company Name: Astra Refrigeranti S.r.l., part of Baglioni Group

Project Description

Region Italy (for Kstovo - Russia)
Dates July 2019 - March 2020
Scope The project scope included design and manufacturing of pressure vessels in accordance with Russian laws and regulation following Project specifications.
Project Specific

All pressures and non-pressure parts (supports, davit, lugs etc.) had to be calculated with ASME VIII D.1 Code and GOST 34347.

PASS software used PASS/EQUIP
How PASS software helped in the project execution

PASS/EQUIP Vessel software has been used to perform calculation according to GOST law: through its easy graphic user interface it was possible to draw a 3-dimensional model of the vessels and easy understand any possible nozzle’s interferences.

Finally, an editable calculation report for each Vessel has been issued on client’s documents format. PASS/EQUIP Vessel software was very helpful during the execution of this project.

Results All documents have been issued and approved by the client and inspectors with positive response. Customer confirms that vessels and related documentation have been provided in accordance to GOST regulation. Vessel have been shipped, exported and installed in Russia in Kstovo Refinery. Currently they are turned-on.
