The Tüpras Project consisted of upgrading of Izmit refinery (Residue Upgrading Project: RUP) in Turkey.

The purpose of this project was to increase the conversion capacity of Izmit refinery, which will enable it to process heavier and high sulphur content crude oils, in order to reduce the deficit of diesel in Turkey, and to adapt the refined products to the EU environmental requirements.

The project included the following main units: hydrocracker, vacuum, coker, hydrogen, sulphur, amine regeneration, sour water unit, as well as a cogeneration unit.

Grupo Cuñado began this project in 2012 and has taken part in the execution under a 26-month contract through its Integral Supply System, supplying more than 30,000 tons of piping (pipes, valves and fittings), and allocating more than 4,000 m2 (43,000 ft2) of indoor warehouse space and 15,000 m2 (161,000 ft2) of outdoor storage area.
