Larsen & Toubro’s Heavy Engineering division delivered six of the world’s largest coke drums, each weighing 658 tonnes, for a refinery project in Mexico ordered by PTI Infraestructura de Desarrollo (PTI-ID), a subsidiary of Mexico’s state-owned oil company PEMEX (Petróleos Mexicanos).
These coke drums form a part of a delayed coking unit in the PEMEX Dos Bocas refinery project, which will transform residue from the combined distillation plant into higher-value products. During the pandemic, they were manufactured at L&T’s state-of-the-art ‘Heavy Engineering Complex’ in Hazira, near Surat.
Anil V Parab, member – L&T executive committee, senior VP & head heavy engineering, said, “We thank PTI-ID for reposing faith in L&T for supplying world’s largest coke drums for such a project.”
Dr Leonardo Cornejo, project director, PTI Infraestructura De Desarrollo S.A de C.V. (PTI-ID) said, “These drums are critical equipment for the refinery project of national importance to Mexico and we are glad to associate with L&T for manufacturing.”
