Al-Zour Refinery Project - KIPIC
Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) plans to build a new refinery, Al-Zour Refinery Project (ZOR), with a refining capacity of 615,000 barrels per day, located approximately 90 km south of Kuwait City, to supply both the domestic and world market demand for ultra-low sulfur petroleum products. In addition, elemental sulfur and middle distillates will be produced for offshore export. The ZOR will be located in the southern coastal region of Kuwait.
The engineering, procurement, and construction of the ZOR Project are divided geographically into five major EPC Contract Packages.
The HSS JV is responsible for engineering, procurement, construction and pre-commissioning for Package 5 consisting of the installation of a complete marine export terminal facility (MTF) for transfer and exporting of solid and liquid products into bulk carriers and tankers
Unit 85: Solids Pier
A solids pier for sulfur export is required. The solids pier is a shore-connected marine structure that facilitates safe and reliable mooring and loading of solid product to ocean-going bulk carriers. This facility provides space and support for ship loading equipment, conveyors, auxiliary equipment, utilities, equipment for control of loading and shipping operations, and access to these same facilities.
Our Project is the Solids Pier Operations (SPO) Building of Unit 85 (also called “Building 85-B-01”, or “Module 85-B-01”, or “SPO Building 85”) to be installed on Solids Pier Utility Platform (Utility Platform) of the ZOR project.

COMPANY’S ROLE IN THE PROJECT AND WHAT MAKES THE PROJECT SPECIAL
Sayed Hamid Behbehani & Sons Co. WLL (SHBC) has been awarded Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Commissioning and installation of Building 85-B-01 for KNPC Al-Zour Refinery Project from HSS JV.
85-B-01 Basic Building Data
• Elevation: 27m (Approx. 3 storey building)
• Length: 28.5m (Approx. without transformer area).
• Width: 14.5m (Approx. without stairs & platforms).
• Estimated weight for offshore lifting: around 1300-t (lifting conditions)
CHALLENGE AND SUCCESS
Monitoring the Weight of building throughout the construction stage so that restricting the overall weight within the lifting limit.
By using BIM and Tekla we could achieve the following benefits,
- Clash detection and Avoiding rework
- Reduced errors
- Reduces conflicts and changes during construction
