KUWAIT CITY, Aug 6: According to a report by the MEED magazine, the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) has tendered two strategic contracts focused on the Mina Al-Ahmadi refinery, through which it plans to use smart ultrasound technology. One of the contracts is a project to inspect six submersible pipelines in the facility using highprecision smart scraping technology based on ultrasound technology.

This technology uses ultrasonic sensors to detect and measure pipe corrosion, metal wear, cracks, scratches and pipe deformations, reports Al-Anba daily. A meeting was held prior to the bid on August 3. It was decided that October 19 will be the deadline for submitting offers. The second contract is related to consulting services for primary engineering and design work for the fuel gas desulfurization unit at the Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery.

The desulfurization units would extract and subtract sulfur dioxide from the exhaust flue gases present in industrial facilities such as oil refineries. Fossil fuels such as coal and oil can contain a large amount of sulfur. When these fuels are burned, 95 percent or more of the sulfur is generally converted to sulfur dioxide. The pre-bid meeting for the contract was held on August 2, and October 19 has been decided as the deadline for bid submissions
