The plant will be located in Barauni, in the State of Bihar, in North-Eastern India.
The overall value of the contract is about US$170 million. The scope of work entails Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning activities up to the Performance Guarantees Test Run. The polypropylene plant will have a capacity of 200,000 tonnes/year and the time schedule is 30 months from the award date up to Mechanical Completion.
The new polypropylene plant will be part of IOCL’s Barauni Refinery capacity expansion project, which entails the installation of large grassroots units as well as revamps and upgrades to increase the capacity of current units.
