MAX STREICHER S.p.A. participates in construction of renewable diesel plant in Rotterdam

The Finnish company Neste recently launched a new project to enhance the production capacity at its Rotterdam refinery in the Netherlands by introducing a plant capable of producing 1.3 Mt of renewable diesel annually.

The project is divided into four construction lots, of which MAX STREICHER S.p.A. has been awarded the contract for mechanical works, the largest one of the four in terms of quantities and effort. The project started this year and is scheduled to be completed by June 2025 with an expected start of operation by 2026. MAX STREICHER S.p.A. is in charge of several construction activities, including piping prefabrication, piping erection and painting works, as well as mechanical hoisting and assembly works, pre-commissioning works and assistance to commissioning activities. Welding processes with noble materials will be executed.

The installation of heavy equipment of substantial weight and size will require the use of cranes, up to a capacity of 1,200 tons, as well as the installation of rotating machines requiring the expertise of professional teams. The project is expected to employ more than 300 workers at its peak.
