L&T Hydrocarbon wins large order from HRRL


L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro, has won an order from HPCL Rajasthan Refinery Limited (HRRL), a joint venture between Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL) and the Government of Rajasthan.

The engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract is for setting up a petrochemical fluidised catalytic cracking (PFCC) including propylene recovery unit, EPCC-03 package (capacity: 2.9 MMTPA), for Rajasthan refinery project at Barmer, Rajasthan. The unit is licensed by TechnipFMC.

The PFCC will convert the heavy hydrocarbons from the vacuum distillation unit to produce more valuable gasoline, diesel, propylene and lighter products by the process of catalytic cracking.

Subramanian SarmaSubramanian Sarma, Whole-time Director & Sr. EVP (Energy), Larsen & Toubro Limited, and CEO & MD, LTHE, said, “This is another package that LTHE has won from HRRL amid stiff global competition. It will be our endeavour to live up to the trust reposed by HRRL and HPCL in our execution capabilities and quality assurance.”

LTHE is already executing three packages for HPCL’s ongoing Visakh refinery modernisation project at Visakhapatnam.
