Hovensa Restarts Process Units After Power Outage

Sept. 28, 2007 — Hovensa has restarted several process units that lost power Thursday morning because of a partial power outage at the refinery.
The outage occurred as the fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit was being shut down pending the repair of the wet gas scrubber, according to a Hovensa news release. "The scrubber treats the flue gas generated in the FCC to prevent particulate air emissions from occurring," the release said.
Power has been restored to all areas affected by the outage. Its cause is still under investigation, said company Vice President Alex Moorhead.
