The Hydrocarbon arm of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) flagged off the first set of pipe-rack modules for India’s maiden Residue Upgradation Facility (RUF) in HPCL’s Vizag Refinery. 

This facility will enable HPCL to convert the heaviest oils into high-quality Euro 6 diesel while simultaneously eliminating fuel oil production. It will also increase feedstock and product flexibility. This facility, licensed by Chevron Lummus Global (CLG), is being built by L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) under an EPCC Contract.

Also, a large-scale modularisation concept is being implemented on this project, which is the first of its kind for a refinery project in India. 30 modules will be fabricated and assembled in L&T’s state-of-the-art fabrication facility at Kattupalli, near Chennai. These will be transported to Vizag using the sea route. The first lot of these pipe-rack modules were flagged off in the presence of senior dignitaries from HPCL, EIL and L&T.

Subramanian Sarma, Whole-time Director & Sr. EVP (Energy), Larsen & Toubro and CEO & MD, LTHE, said “L&T has built and deployed significant modularisation capabilities for offshore projects. We have now brought this concept to onshore projects as well. This should address some of the challenges faced by the industry concerning skill availability, enhanced schedule, HSE & quality performance.”
