- THE WORLD'S LARGEST OIL REFINERY, INDIA
COMPLETING THE LARGEST OIL REFINERY IN THE WORLD TOOK FLAWESS PLANNING AND EXECUTION
All the pipes used in this project can connect India from north to south
Vision, imagination and utmost devotion were the requirements to develop what is possibly the largest private sector crude oil refinery in the world - definitely not a task for amateurs.
The refinery is a private sector crude oil refinery in Jamnagar, Gujarat. It was slated to have a capacity of 668,000 barrels or 106,203m3/d. The entire complex was supposed to house manufacturing and allied facilities, utilities, off sites, port facilities and a township (415 acres of land) with housing for its 2,500 employees, resulting in over 7,500 acres.
If all of the pipes used in this refinery were laid out, one after another, they would connect the whole of India from north to south. Naturally, the concreting partner had to be flawless in its planning and execution, while the machinery had to be up to the task, high performing, robust and able to withstand the demands of the job.
Completing a globally competitive RPL refinery in 36 months.
Putzmeister was the first company in India to launch a homologated BSF 42-09 M on a normal priced truck chassis. Also utilised were the BSF2007 & 8 BSF 36-09, a comprehensive product range from Putzmeister. The on-site staff appreciated the performance of both the BSF 42-09 and BSF 36-09.
The BSF 42-09 machine, used for the first time in India, has seen no spare parts consumption till date. Working smoothly day and night on site, it has proved that quantity and quality of performance can indeed go hand in hand.
