Daelim Industrial held a ceremony in Kuwait on Feb. 20 to mark the completion of a sulfur reprocessing plant. The project was carried out to remove sulfur, an environmental pollutant emitted from oil refineries while selling solid sulfur produced through reprocessing to create added value.
With the completion of construction, the capacity for sulfur reprocessing increased from 2,431 tons a day to 9,600 tons. And facilities capable of shipping 1,900 tons of solid sulfur per hour have been completed.
Daelim carried out the project in a package contract method, which is responsible for design, purchase, construction, and start-up of equipment and materials. The total project cost is about 618 billion won. The plant was built at the Mina Al Ahmadi petrochemical complex, about 45 kilometers south of the capital Kuwait City.
Most of the projects were under construction at offshore and operational plants, which made the work very difficult. In particular, in the second half of 2018, when the amount of construction work reached its highest level, the work was halted due to an unprecedented flood in Kuwait.
Despite such unfavorable conditions, Daelim Industrial completed the construction one month earlier than the contracted period.
