The center will start operations in 2016. It includes a crude oil distillation facility with a capacity of 2.5 million tons, a catalytic cracking unit, a storage tank area for gas and petrochemical by-products and a sewage treatment plant.

AEG Power Solutions is providing fifteen Protect 8 UPS and two Protect 4 UPS, as well as batteries, to secure the power supply to the main critical equipment of this sensitive operation center. The systems will be powering applications such as the control system of torch recovery and the transformer substation for recycled water, as well as the transformer substation and control system of air partial pressure.

Protect 8, which represents the main part of this contract, is one of the most reliable UPS in its class. The system’s design is based on an innovative modular architecture, enhanced manufacturing processes, and "fit to specification" concept, which ensures that each application gets exactly what it needs to guarantee optimal performance levels and to achieve world class performance.

"We were able to adapt the technical configuration to the specific requirements of the site and the applications," explains Ever Guo, Managing Director at AEG PS China. "The performance of our products even in harsh conditions is renowned, and we have proven track records in the petrochemical industry which made the difference".

AEG Power Solutions has already provided UPS and industrial chargers to CNOOC to secure power on various projects since 2010, such as the Kenli and Nanping offshore drilling platforms, as well as the Hainan East and Zhejiang Daxie petrochemical projects. The cooperation is now going further, as AEG PS designed and is providing the complete solution.

CNOOC is the largest producer of offshore crude oil and natural gas in China and one of the largest independent oil and gas exploration and production companies in the world. The Group mainly engages in exploration, development, production and sale of crude oil and natural gas.
