Satorp included yet another item to its list of accomplishments by erecting the refinery’s biggest piece of equipment. Weighing an astonishing 1500 tons and reaching a height of 100 meters, this piece of equipment took fifteen (15) hours to be erected by Mammoet Arabia using a 3000-ton capacity crane.

The massive column, considered the largest of its kind in the region, was manufactured by no other than Jubail based Maritime Industrial Services Arabia Co. Ltd. (MIS Arabia), whereas the design was carried out by Samsung Engineering. It took a total of 300,000 man-hours for the completion of the column from design to final inspection. This column, which stands tall and mighty, belongs to Package 3 (Aromatics) and is one of the key elements of the paraxylene unit. Fortunately, on the day of erection, the wind was quite favorable, considerably easing the erection process. Again, Satorp and its dedicated employees have proven capable of handling any challenges.
