Larsen & Toubro provides industrial equipment to OMIFCO
India’s Larsen & Toubro (L&T) received a $32.5 million contract to supply equipment to the Oman India Fertilizer Company (OMIFCO). The orders will be jointly executed by L&T's Heavy Engineering Division (HED) and the Engineering & Construction (E&C) Division.
France's Technip-Coflexip, in a 50/50 joint venture with Snamprogetti, signed a $770 million turnkey contract with the Oman-India Fertilizer Company (OMIFCO) last April for the design and construction of a fertilizer complex in Oman. The joint venture in turn, gave an order to L&T.
Under the order, HED will be responsible for design, fabrication and supply of all critical equipment such as ammonia converters, reformed gas waste heat boiler systems, secondary reformers, ammonia separators, alloy steel reactors, CO2 absorbers and regenerators, high-pressure heat exchangers for two ammonia plants of 1,750 tons per day (tpd) capacity each, and also urea reactors for two urea plants of 2,530 tpd capacity each.
Under the order, L&T's E&C Division is responsible for the supply of two primary reformer packages for OMIFCO's ammonia plant against stiff international competition from Heurtey Petrochem, Foster-Wheeler and Kirchner Italia.
The $780 million complex will be erected 150 kilometers south of Muscat. It will comprise of two 1,750 on-per-day ammonia plants, two 2,350 ton-per-day urea plants, two granulation units as well as associated utilities, off-sites and marine works.
