Another compressor is used to supply compressed air to the coils of the pyrolysis ovens for the decoking procedure. The equipment will be installed in the water treatment shop No. 7209 EP-600.

The compressor unit will be the last batch of equipment delivered by water transport. The delivery of the main part of large-sized equipment, in particular 17 technological columns for EP-600, was carried out in navigation 2020 - from April to October.
