R&D Services

From 2016, our new Oleochemical laboratory and pilot plant facility in Rayong, Thailand enables thyssenkrupp to provide analytical, process optimisation, and technology development services all from one integrated location.  We can also prepare mg to kg quantities of compounds for characterisation and market testing.

Feasibility Studies

We work with clients to define concepts, identify new processes and process options, and develop new products and methods.   We help with technology evaluation and selection.  We optimise plant configuration according to available raw materials, product slate, and site constraints.

Process & Product Development

Working from your flowscheme or ours, we can qualify raw materials, validate process concepts and recipes in our pilot plant, perform Value Engineering, and optimise the flowsheet to meet key project objectives such as investment cost, energy efficiency, and sustainability.

Basic & Front End Engineering

thyssenkrupp operates a 300-strong engineering office in Rayong with a proven track record in delivering Basic Engineering and FEESD Packages across refining, petrochemicals, oil and gas, and specialty chemical industry sectors.  This office also carries out FEL-3 engineering for our Oleochemicals business line.

Project Execution

We offer EPC lump sum competence in nearly all countries for stick-built plant for our own as well as third party technologies.  We have also developed special expertise in design and fabrication of complete process and utility modules which can be delivered world-wide.

Plant Revamps

We share our knowledge with clients to identify opportunities for modernisation, capacity expansion, energy savings and waste reduction.  Revamps of existing facilities can be very cost competitive compared with new plant especially when existing site utilities and infrastructure can be exploited.
