L&T Heavy Engineering’s modification, revamp, and upgrade (MRU) business unit has completed the contracts it was awarded as part of HPCL’s ambitious Mumbai Refinery Expansion Project (MREP). The project comprises a capacity increase from 7.5 mmtpa to 9.5 mmtpa, with the goal of generating BS-VI compatible petrol and high-speed diesel.
At HPCL’s Mumbai Refinery, the MRU team accomplished the simultaneous shutdown of four plants: Atmospheric Pipe Still (APS), Naphtha Stabilizing Unit (NSU), Continuous Catalyst Regenerator (CCR), and Fluid Catalytic Cracking Unit (FCCU).
The MRU business of L&T Heavy Engineering is scaling up steadily. In recent years, MRU teams have executed some of the marquee projects like Orpic, Oman – FCC Revamp and Equate, Kuwait – Heat Train Revamp. “We faced multiple challenges due to COVID second wave in Mumbai, workmen exodus due to fear of complete lockdown and cyclone Tauktae. Throughout the execution our safety record was the best amongst all contractors,” said Anil Parab, senior VP & head, Heavy Engineering, Larsen & Toubro.
