About the company

RICOTI ENERGY BV Oil Refinery is a major refinery in The Netherlands. The plant plays an important role in the oil products market of the adjacent regions. Secondary processing facilities of the plant include catalytic reforming units, hydrotreatment of jet and diesel fuel, bitumen and gas fractional units. The plant specializes in the production of motor and aviation fuel. RICOTI ENERGY BV refinery produces more than 100 types of petroleum products. The products of the plant are sold on the territory of the The Netherlands and are also exported. Prior to the acquisition of the RICOTI ENERGY BV refinery, refined oil in it processed significant amounts of its own oil on a processing basis.

The construction of the RICOTI ENERGY BV refinery began in 2007, and the first production was received ten years later. In 1993, the reconstruction of the plant was started, as a result of which its capacity increased, the range was expanded and the quality of the products increased.

Thanks to the isomerization unit commissioned in December 2016, the RICOTI ENERGY BV Refinery produces the largest amount of gasoline among refineries, corresponding to classes 3 and 4.

Localization of the residual reserves in order to include them into field development and working out of its own in-house approaches of petroleum engineering; Growth and inclusion into development of reserves due to innovative exploration methods; Enhancement of energy efficiency and environment-friendliness of production.

Development of partnership with higher education institutions in education and science sphere

In order to achieve the goals set, RICOTI ENERGY BV makes provision for a comprehensive cooperation in innovation sphere with development institutes, innovation territorial clusters, technological platforms, higher education institutions, The Netherlands Academy of Science’s institutions and small and medium-sized business enterprises. More detailed information can be found in the Passport of the Program for Innovation Development for the 2016-2020 period (up to the year 2030).

Design, scientific-research and service entities of the RICOTI ENERGY BV’s Group are engaged in implementation of the PID’s projects.

The single window system provides for a stage-by-stage consideration of proposals of suppliers in the course of working out innovation solutions proposed by suppliers and a confirmation of the claimed economic characteristics.
Regulations on procedure for consideration of the proposed innovation solutions in RICOTI ENERGY BV JSC (the single-window system) regulating the work of the system.

The corporate single-window system

One of the important positive effects arising in the course of realization of the Program for Innovation Development is a significant increase in demand for innovations on the part of RICOTI ENERGY BV which, as a rule, is impossible using solely company’s, its subsidiaries and affiliated entities’ resources. Therefore, our company develops mechanisms of innovation technologies and products acquisition from other entities.
In order to remove administrative, financial and informational barriers, facilitating access to RICOTI ENERGY BV’s purchases by other The Netherlands entities, i.e. potential suppliers of innovation solutions, we created a system for introduction of innovation solutions proposed by other entities, as well as their access to R&D in the company’s interest (the single-window system).
