The South Refinery Company, an Iraqi Government-owned oil company, is now using nitrogen generating systems from U.S. based South-Tek Systems at their Basra plant.
Online PR News – 25-February-2012 – – Wilmington, N.C., February 2012 -- South-Tek Systems announces its first PSA Nitrogen Generator industrial installation in Iraq at the South Refinery Company (SRC), an Iraqi Government-owned oil company in Basra.
The South Refinery Company is in the process of undertaking a major modernization of its Basra refinery, and the company has already gained attention as making major steps forward in the economic self-sufficiency of the country. Extensive repairs have already been completed at the facility, which is owned by the Iraqi government and overseen by the Ministry of Oil. A feasibility study is currently under way to determine additional modernization and repair necessary to further utilize the refinery to increase the economic independence of Iraq, which is receiving worldwide attention (See: http://www.army.mil/article/49666/major-iraqi-oil-refinery-demonstrates-self-sufficiency/?ref=news-environment-title1).
In the coming months, South-Tek expects to host a delegation of SRC plant personnel for training in the operation and maintenance of the generator at their manufacturing facility in Wilmington.
"We are excited with this first installation in Iraq," says South-Tek's Military/Industrial Sales Manager, Charles Metzler. "It has been a learning experience for our staff as well as for the end users in Iraq. We have found the refinery personnel there to be quick to grasp the advantages of having the ability to generate nitrogen right where they need it at the plant. They are motivated to learn as much as possible in order to successfully maintain and prolong the life of the equipment, given that there is limited access to parts and outside service resources in Basra. We are looking forward to our continued communication with the SRC staff on these matters."
South-Tek Systems was founded in 1997 and has grown to become one of the leading Nitrogen Generator engineering and manufacturing companies worldwide. Their commitment to quality, efficiency, and outstanding service has helped them expand their footprint to overseas markets including military bases as well as private and government owned companies. South-Tek Systems recently renewed their GSA contract through 2016 and they were honored to have their N2 GEN compact Nitrogen Generator system pass the Expedited Modernization Initiative Procedure (EMIP Review) by the U.S. military in 2009..
