PT LV Logistics has set a new domestic record for the Indonesian heavy haul industry with the delivery of RFCC plant components to the Balikpapan refinery in East Kalimantan. The main actors included three Goldhofer PST/SL self-propelled transporter combinations.
The Indonesian government’s refinery development master plan has a budget of around US$ 17 billion. The money is to be spent on upgrading and modernizing the five largest oil refineries in the country in line with the latest environmental standards. One of them is the Balikpapan Refinery in East Kalimantan on Borneo. A main item in the refinery upgrade involved the supply of plant components and equipment for residual fluid catalytic crackers (RFCC), which employ catalytic cracking to process crude oil to the highest environmental standards into high-quality oil for the production of gasoline and diesel fuels.
