Yet to be completed Dangote Refinery is to receive the world’s largest atmospheric tower from China’s Sinopec. Sinopec group disclosed that it is shipping the tower to Dangote Refinery in Lekki Lagos.
“It will travel to #Nigeria and be installed at the world’s biggest single-train facility – Nigeria’s Dangote Refinery”, Sinopec tweeted on Monday night.
The tower has left a wharf in Ningbo, in Zhejiang Province in China’s north eats, Sinopec said. The journey may take up to a month.
Sinopec referred to Dangote refinery as the world’s biggest single-train facility.
The atmospheric tower, also known as the distillation tower, will help separate crude oil into its components for further processing by other processing units.
