KT has executed with TRIPLAN as Licensor of coke handling package, the DCU-CCSS configuration in the two above scenarios with care of value engineering solutions in terms of Energy Saving, Layout Optimization, Process interface with the main unit and constructability constraints , providing an interesting bench mark for DCU turnkey solutions.

KT envisages the CCSS implementation in the Delayed Coking process as a potential breakthrough in the traditional DCU market to meet modern environmental responsiveness.
