Primoris Awarded Contract to Supply Fractionator Reboiler for Diamond Green Diesel’s Port Arthur Sustainable Aviation Fuel Project

DALLAS, TX — Primoris Services Corporation (Primoris) announces that its OnQuest business, an equipment designer and manufacturer specializing in process fired heaters within its Energy segment, has been selected to supply a fractionator reboiler for Diamond Green Diesel’s (DGD) sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) project at its Port Arthur, Texas, plant adjacent to Valero’s refinery. DGD is a joint venture between Valero and Darling Ingredients Inc. The SAF project will take place at DGD’s new renewable diesel plant which came online ahead of schedule late last year.

“We’re thrilled to apply our decades of experience designing and supplying specialty furnaces to this landmark renewable fuel project,” said Jeremy Kinch, President of Primoris’ Energy division. “As DGD embarks on this important step to become a leader in SAF, we’re excited to serve as a collaborative partner focused on quality and safe execution. We’re extremely proud to work with our clients on innovative projects that contribute to a lower carbon future.”

Upon project completion, the DGD Port Arthur plant will have the capability to upgrade approximately half of its current 470-million-gallon annual production capacity to SAF. Primoris’ scope of work encompasses the engineering, design, procurement, documentation, fabrication, inspection, testing, and preparation for the shipment of a SAF fractionator reboiler heater. The project is anticipated to be operational in 2025.
