Petrofac has been awarded a contract by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) for its Sulphur Recovery Unit (SRU) Block Package for the Visakh Refinery Modernisation Project (VRMP), Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India.
The lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) project, valued at approximately US$200 million, includes licensing and commissioning. The SRU package will be constructed within the existing refinery under the terms of the 30-month contract.
Sunder Kalyanam, Group Managing Director for Petrofac’s Engineering & Construction Growth business said: “We are delighted to be supporting HPCL in the delivery of this important package at the Visakh Refinery. It is particularly satisfying to be expanding our EPC activities in-country with this award and our recent contract award in Kerala. Both demonstrate our growth strategy in action and the continued strength of our capability in the refinery sector.”
