The most technologically sophisticated public sector refinery complex in India is the Panipat Refinery. Located in Panipat’s ancient district in the State of Haryana, it was completed in July 1998. The Panipat Complex is the third-biggest petrochemical and refinery hub in South East Asia and the largest in India. The Complex is made up of a refinery, the PX/PTA Aromatics Complex, and the Naphtha Cracker Olefinic Complex.
The refinery’s initial installed capacity was 6.0 MMTPA. The capacity was increased to 12 MMTPA in 2006 and again to 15 MMTPA in 2010 in order to address the growing deficit of petroleum products. The Hydro cracking Unit, Delayed Coking Unit, Diesel Hydro treatment Unit, Hydrogen Generation Unit, Sulphur Block, and the related ancillary facilities are some of the major secondary units. The Panipat Refinery Additional Expansion Project (PRAEP), which included capacity upgrades for the OHCU, DCU, and ARU units, was a low-cost solution for raising the refining capacity from 12 MMTPA to 15 MMTPA by maximum utilization of existing units and equipment.
With the opening of the largest Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) factory in the nation, Indian Oil became a major force in the petrochemical industry. Midway through 2006, the PTA Unit at Panipat Refinery, equipped with cutting-edge technology, was put into operation. The combined PX-PTA project was designed to use naphtha from Panipat Refinery and Mathura to produce 553 TMT of PTA and 360 TMT of paraxylene annually. The production of polyester staple fibre (PSF), polyester filament yarn (PFY), and other resins both employ xylene as an intermediate product. In the refinery’s Cracker and Aromatic Complex, symbiotic stream sharing of streams such naphtha, propylene, C7-C8, C4, and hydrogen leads to the economic advantage of the entire complex, it is the essence of effective stream sharing.
The strategic leadership vision of VRC Group for the construction of a refinery in Panipat has placed process automation at its core. We achieve outstanding operational performance and profitability while adhering strictly to safety and environmental regulations by utilizing the most recent technologies and teaming up with the best. Piling, civil, structural, and U/G piping work for new process units at the Panipat Refinery for the BS-VI Project of Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), India, has been given to VRC Constructions. Construction was finished by our group for a total of 106.82 crores. With the aid of a committed team, VRC Group was able to complete the assigned assignment in the allotted period of three years.
The civil and structural works for creating infrastructure for 100KLPD (Kiloliters per day) of 2G (second generation) Ethanol from Biomass at Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) in Panipat involved the construction and installation of necessary facilities and equipment for the production of ethanol from biomass. This included the construction of facilities for the storage and processing of biomass feedstock, production units for the conversion of biomass into ethanol, and storage tanks for the finished product. The work also involved the design and construction of supporting structures and systems such as electrical, plumbing, and wastewater treatment. With the help of a dedicated staff, VRC Group executed multiple projects for IOCL, Panipat.
The Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) Refinery Expansion Project (P25) is a significant current project being executed by VRC Constructions. The aim of this project is to expand the existing IOCL Refinery to increase its production capacity and improve its efficiency.
Part A of the project involves the construction of Offsite facilities, which includes the installation of piling, underground, and civil/structural works. Piling refers to the process of driving metal or concrete piles into the ground to provide a solid foundation for the construction of buildings or other structures. The underground work involves the excavation and construction of underground pipelines, storage tanks, and other facilities. The civil/structural work involves the construction of buildings, foundations, and other structures that are above ground.
Part B CDW includes Pilling, Civil Structure, Underground Piping, and Underground Electrical work. Piling refers to the process of driving metal or concrete piles into the ground to provide a solid foundation for the construction of buildings or other structures. The civil structure work involves the construction of buildings, foundations, and other structures that are above ground. The underground piping work involves the installation of pipelines and other facilities below the ground. The underground electrical work involves the installation of electrical cables and equipment underground.
Part B SRU of the project involves the construction of the SRU facilities, which includes piling, underground, and civil/structural works. Piling refers to the process of driving metal or concrete piles into the ground to provide a solid foundation for the construction of buildings or other structures. The underground work involves the excavation and construction of underground pipelines, storage tanks, and other facilities. The civil/structural work involves the construction of buildings, foundations, and other structures that are above ground.
In summary, the IOCL Refinery Expansion Project (P25) is a complex project that involves the construction of Offsite and SRU facilities, including piling, underground, civil/structural, and electrical work. VRC Constructions is responsible for executing this project and ensuring that it is completed on time and within budget.
An atmospheric unit refers to a system operating at atmospheric pressure, while a vacuum unit operates under reduced pressure to remove gases or substances. The scope of work includes piling and substructure RCC works, RCC and structural steel works for pipe racks/technological structures, RCC works for equipment foundations (such as pumps, process columns, vessels, exchangers, skids, filters), RCC works for the heater and associated foundations, RCC and structural steel works for vacuum column supporting structure, RCC and structural steelwork for lift structure with profiled, pre-coated Zincalume/Galvalume steel sheet, RCC works in trenches, dismantling works in PCC, RCC, structural steel, construction of RCC stormwater drain/catch basin/pavement/valve pits/manhole/hard stand & cleanout pits, and architectural works like roofing, side cladding, ventilation, rainwater drainage for various pump sheds in the AVU unit of the new refinery area, and any other work as instructed by the Engineer-in-charge.
