Sited on a 770 hectare industrialised area of Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, the Stanlow Oil Refinery is one of the largest oil refineries in Europe processing up to 9 million tonnes of crude oil and feedstock every year. It is part of the Essar Group, a global and diversified business corporation with a balanced portfolio of assets in the manufacturing and services sectors of steel, oil and gas, power, communications, shipping ports and logistics; and construction. The Stanlow Manufacturing Complex in Cheshire plays a strategic role in the UK economy, supplying 16% of all road transport fuels.
It is also a major regional employer of staff and onsite contractors; and supports several thousand other people indirectly through the extended value chain. With an array of processes to operate and maintain, including chemical facilities used to produce items such as propylene, Ethyl Benzene and detergent intermediates, the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex is a fully integrated and multi-faceted facility requiring support in many areas from asset lifecycle management through to development into new technologies and novel techniques.
Supported at the very highest level within Essar Oil UK and following in the footsteps of the hugely successful exhibition organised by Nu-Tech at this venue last year, this year’s exhibition will be a ‘showcase’ event for all departments on the refinery site to gain benefit from effective supplier engagement.
