100 years of Amec Foster Wheelers’ Fired Heaters

Summary
  • A century of Fired Heaters, supporting the development and growth of the global refining market
  • Over 2,500 Fired Heaters in over 70 countries

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today the 100th anniversary of its Fired Heaters business.

In 1915, the first vegetable oil heater was supplied using ‘Power Specialty’s’ technology, a founding Amec Foster Wheeler company, and was quickly adapted for the emerging refinery industry. Since then Fired Heaters have been critical components of all refineries, as well in petrochemical, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and other facilities, which the company still designs, builds, installs and supports a century later.

Amec Foster Wheeler’s team of approximately 150 Fired Heater specialists, located across the world, continue to provide full life-cycle support, technically superior designs, and efficient equipment, all based on their significant pedigree and century of experience.

Since 1915 the Company has supplied an average of over 25 fired heaters per year in more than 70 countries, in all six inhabited continents.

Jon Nield, Amec Foster Wheeler’s Group Project Delivery Director, said: “Our Fired Heaters team has a 100 years of cutting edge expertise at its fingertips and has helped to shape today’s global refining and petrochemicals industry. Millions of people, without even knowing it, have been transported by a product which one of our Fired Heaters has helped to refine.”
