KSB got a contract to supply 189 process pumps for the new Nghi Son refinery in Vietnam. The location is situated around 200 kilometres south of Hanoi in the Tinh Gia district. The plant under construction is Vietnam’s second refinery and is due to enter operation in 2017. The pumps will be used in crude oil distillation and aromatic compounds production. Depending on the fluid to be handled, the casings will be made of either steel or stainless steel. Impellers, shafts and casing wear rings will be manufactured from corrosion-resistant stainless steels.
