History of the Kolín refinery


The "Czech joint-stock company for kerosene refining in Kolín" was established on October 1, 1901. The Vacuum Oil Company became a major investor during the First Republic, thanks to which the solvent-pair refining unit enabled the production of viscous aviation oils.
This made it one of the two unique units in Europe. After 1945, when the plant was reconstructed after the raid, the traditional production was gradually resumed. In the 1960s, the plant began processing hydrogenated oils from Litvínov. In 1993, a distillation column was formed, allowing hydrocracks to be divided into narrow sections, and the first high-index hydrocracking oils were produced. A new automatically controlled oil mixer was built in 1996.
