The newly commissioned Motor Spirit Quality Upgradation Plant in Panipat,
India, is one of the first refineries to achieve Euro-III norms. A truly green fuel,
gasoline produced at the Panipat Refinery will have minimal levels of benzene
and sulphur. Larsen & Toubro performed project management services as well
as engineering, procurement, commissioning, and performance guarantee.
Using Project Wise, the project team collaborated from offices located in
different cities across the country. Despite changes in a scope from the
construction team, schedule progress was maintained while targets were
adjusted. General arrangement drawings and various layouts were extracted
from the project, and approximately 10 to 12 percent of the project resources
Larsen & Toubro Limited
Larsen & Toubro was retained by MRPL to design additional capacity at the
Mangalore crude oil refinery from 12 to 15 million metric tons per annum.
Capital cost of the project is approximately $83 million. The project was
particularly challenging due to the limited time frame and the number of
changes to the equipment layout.
Larsen & Toubro used MicroStation and Plant Wise for 3D modeling.
Project Wise Navigator brought it all together, allowing interdisciplinary team
members to review and optimize equipment layouts and eliminate clashes on
this fast-track project. The new plant will deliver needed additional refining
capacity and produce fuels meeting stringent emission standards.
