This is the largest order ever received by L&T from South America, the Company said in a release, adding that the Reactors will be manufactured from advanced technology steels, containing Chromium, Molybdenum and Vanadium, while the Coke Drums will be manufactured using Cr-Mo Steel.
These Reactors and Coke Drums will be delivered to the refinery in Brazil in the financial year 2010-11. Anticipating the developments in the global hydrocarbon industry, L&T has proactively embarked on a major expansion programme at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Hazira, which is rated as one of the largest and most modern integrated manufacturing complexes situated on a water front with easy access to the sea.
In addition, a new heavy fabrication facility is under construction at Sohar, Oman. This facility will be a first-of-its-kind venture in the Gulf Cooperation Council region and will have the capability to manufacture critical equipment for refineries, petrochemicals and fertilizer projects apart from other process industries.
