Larsen & Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro (L&T), has been awarded a project by the  Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL).

The engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract is for setting up a residue upgradation facility (RUF), EPCC-03 Package for Visakh Refinery Modernisation Project (VRMP) at HPCL's Vizag Refinery.

The RUF plant is licensed by Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) with a capacity of 3.55 million tpa.

The plant will enable HPCL to convert the heaviest oils into high-quality Euro 6 diesel while simultaneously eliminating fuel oil production, along with increasing feedstock and product flexibility.

The facility is being implemented for the first time in India. The contract is awarded through an international competitive bidding on lump sum turnkey (LSTK) basis.

It is part of HPCL's ongoing Visakh Refinery Modernisation Project wherein LTHE is already executing two packages, namely Crude Distillation Unit/Vacuum Distillation Unit and Full Conversion Hydrocracker Unit.
