OMV Schwechat Refinery is in full operation
Following the incident in June 2022 at the OMV Schwechat Refinery, it is now running at full capacity again. The alternative supply system, which was used to make up for the production restrictions of the Schwechat Refinery during the repairs, will be maintained as an additional source of supply for as long as necessary. This will allow reliable supply to the markets in addition to stocks being replenished more quickly.

During the legally required water pressure test as part of the final works on the turnaround of the OMV Schwechat Refinery, damage occurred to the outer skin on the main column of the crude oil distillation unit on June 3, 2022. A task force was put in place immediately and entrusted with restoring the facility and instantly setting up an alternative supply system to supply the markets served by the OMV Schwechat Refinery.

Repair

In addition to the 800-strong OMV workforce at the Schwechat site, up to 320 other experts from various partner companies in Austria as well as Europe were deployed to carry out the repair and to guarantee and optimize the partial operation of the refinery.

The affected column is 50 meters high with an average diameter of 8 meters. Extensive dismantling and preparatory work began immediately after the incident along with ordering of materials and prefabrication for the repairs. The 100-ton column head was detached and lifted by a 70-meter-high crane to speed up the dismantling and repair process. A total of 200 metric tons of steel were processed into replacement parts and assembled and replaced in less than 16 weeks.

At the end of September, the legally required water pressure test on the main column of the crude distillation unit was successfully completed. After that, the precisely prepared commissioning process was implemented step by step. Following the successful maximization of throughput in all downstream units, the OMV Schwechat Refinery is now running at full capacity again.

Alternative supply system to be maintained

The alternative supply system, which largely offset the production restrictions at the Schwechat Refinery during the repair, will be maintained as an additional source of supply for as long as necessary. OMV will continue to reliable supply the markets will in addition replenish the stocks quickly.

“Thanks to the flexibility, the support, the extraordinary commitment of all parties involved, the repair was completed without incident and the markets served by the OMV Schwechat Refinery continued to receive reliable supplies”, said Alfred Stern, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of OMV. “I would also like to thank the Austrian Federal Government and the members of the National Council as well as the relevant authorities and ministries in Slovakia and Hungary who helped to bridge bottlenecks and keep supply stable by releasing some of the mandatory emergency reserves”.
