Sincor Petcoke and Sulfur Handling Hero Image

Sincor Petcoke and Sulfur Handling

Location: Jose, Venezuela

The Sincor Coke and Sulfur Handling Facility was designed to handle 2.4 million tpy of petroleum coke and 380,000 tpy of either molten or prilled sulfur. Matrix PDM Engineering provided complete EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management) Services for the construction of this major coke and sulfur export facility.

Design included state of the art material handling systems and storage for petcoke and prilled and
liquid sulfur to transport the product from the nearby refinery to storage and out for export. The material handling systems included miles of conveyors, stacking, stockpiling and reclaim systems, dust suppression systems, shiploaders, steam-traced piping, a sulfur loading arm, and marine structures. Storage consisted of two massive cement storage pads and sulfur storage tanks. The project team implemented key features such as dual orbiting shiploaders, the first of their type to be constructed, and also bulk and liquid loadout capability via a single berthing point on the dock.

The more than 190,000 man-hour project was executed on a fast-track basis with Matrix PDM procuring 95 equipment sub-systems and managing all construction contracts for this $270 million project. The successful project execution resulted in the stockpiling of petroleum coke just 18 months after the start of conceptual engineering.
