The unit is licensed by TechnipFMC. “The PFCC will convert the heavy hydrocarbons from the Vacuum Distillation Unit to produce more valuable gasoline, diesel, propylene and lighter products by the process of catalytic cracking,” said the statement.
Subramanian Sarma, whole-time Director and Senior EVP (Energy), Larsen & Toubro Limited, and CEO and MD, LTHE said, “We are very delighted to be part of this mega development project in Rajasthan and I would like to thank HRRL and HPCL for having trust in our capabilities to deliver such complex process plants with high standards of HSE and Quality.”
