BMT designs heavy lift jetty

March 28 - BMT Asia Pacific has completed a concept jetty design for Petroliam Nasional Berhad's (Petronas) proposed Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) complex in southeast Johor, Malaysia.

The material off loading facility (MOLF) - designed in partnership with Technip - will include a temporary heavy lift jetty that will be an integral part of the infrastructure needed to realise the RAPID project.

"Given that heavy lifts of specialised modules and equipment will be performed at the jetty during the RAPID project construction phase, we needed to carefully consider the customer's requirements and ensure an optimum layout," said Per Cato Roed, managing director of BMT Asia Pacific.

Petronas' RAPID project will help to address the growing need for petroleum and commodity petrochemical products in the Asia Pacific region. The proposed RAPID refinery will have a capacity of 300,000 barrels per day that will produce naphtha and liquid petroleum gas (LPG) feedstock for the RAPID petrochemical complex, as well as gasoline and diesel that meet European specifications.
