Refinery Gelsenkirchen

In Gelsenkirchen, BP is running refinery and petrochemical plants in the city districts Horst and Scholven.
As a specialist company, STAG has been entrusted to supply the conveying systems and components ensuring the removal of catalyst dust of the newly built FCC plant.


The catalyst dust is separated in the electric filter and fed into the storage silo using pneumatic conveying technology.

For the evacuation of the catalyst dust from the storage silo in order to fill it into silo vehicles, a loading facility is used.  
The dust removal plant has been successfully put into operation in 2007. Since that time, STAG supports BP by providing service operations and supplying the necessary spare and wear parts.
