LTHE Leads India’s Refinery Modernization

In a significant stride towards enhancing India's oil refining capabilities, Larsen & Toubro's subsidiary, L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE), has secured a pivotal project from Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) to implement a Residue Up-gradation Facility at the HPCL Visakh Refinery. This project is a part of the ambitious Visakh Refinery Modernization Project (VRMP) poised to dramatically transform the refinery's output and efficiency.


The facility, endowed with a technology licensed by Chevron Lummus Global, is designed to process 3.55 million tonnes per annum, turning heavy oils into high-quality Euro 6 diesel. This initiative is not just a leap towards cleaner fuel but a significant milestone in India's commitment to environmental sustainability. Moreover, LTHE is concurrently executing two additional packages for the VRMP, underscoring its integral role in the refinery's modernization efforts.
