- THE WORLD'S LARGEST OIL REFINERY, INDIA
COMPLETING THE LARGEST OIL REFINERY IN THE WORLD TOOK FLAWESS PLANNING AND EXECUTION
We helped build the largest oil refinery in the world, so why not the second largest?
Building a full functioning oil refinery is no easy task, especially if it’s the second largest,
single-location refinery. Situated in Vadinar, Gujrat, this private sector crude oil refinery was
slated to have an annual capacity of 64,400m 3 /d i.e 405,000 barrels and is home to over
1,600 employees. The project first commissioned in 1996 was delayed several times due to
environmental concerns and several other issues. It was however, finally completed in 2006.
Constructing one of the world’s most complex oil refineries.
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.
Concrete Takeaways :
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.
