The La Cabezuela-Puerto Real dock is home to the assembly of four steam-producing boilers for a Hyundai petrochemical plant in Vietnam.
Cabezuela-Puerto Real hosts the construction of four boilers for a Vietnamese refinery
These boilers, of great dimensions, have been designed by the Scottish engineering company WOOD and manufactured by the chiclanera company FIBE, specialized in special constructions related to the naval industry and tubes in general.
The four boilers, which have started to be built in January, are approximately 12 meters long, 8 meters wide and 9 meters high, and weigh 203 tons when empty and up to 285 tons when full of water.
These dimensions have forced the manufacturing company to look for a suitable space in which to assemble them, considering the Puerto Rico dock to be optimal since, once completed, they will be transported by sea to their final destination.
This confirms the competitiveness and strategic location of the port of Cadiz to host operations and work of special loads.
The boilers are designed for a working pressure of 56.4 Kg/cm2; test pressure of 84.6 kg/cm2, steam production of 181.5 T/h. They are made of steel of different qualities, with a thickness of 46 mm for the water boiler and 86 mm for the steam boiler.
