HMEL, a key player in the Indian energy industry and owner of the fifth largest refinery in India, Guru Gobind Singh, awarded the contract for the design and manufacturing of more than 2,200 cryogenic and non-cryogenic gate, globe and check valves, being some of them for high pressure applications, to AMPO POYAM VALVES.
HMEL is setting up an integrated petrochemical complex at the existing Guru Gobind Singh Refinery in Bathinda, Punjab state, India, which will be a 1.2-million-ton mixed feed cracker plant, expandable to 1.5 million ton. The new dual-feed ethylene plant will include a steam cracker, a refinery off-gas treatment unit, a C4 hydrogeneration unit, a pyrolysis gasoline hydrogenation unit, a benzene extraction unit, a butene unit, two polyethylene swing units, a HDPE unit and a polypropylene unit.
AMPO POYAM VALVES has worked hand in hand with HMEL on the optimal valve selection for each special unit and critical application of this new petrochemical complex and is supplying valves up to 30” and 2500 lbs. A special mention deserves the development of several high pressure (2500lbs) 24” Y pattern globe valves.
It has been our wide experience in the petrochemical and refining industries and thousands and thousands of cryogenic and non-cryogenic as well as high pressure service valve references worldwide, and in particular in India, which has made HMEL entrust the award of this contract to AMPO POYAM VALVES. Moreover, it should be noted that AMPO POYAM VALVES has since 2009 an outstanding and a 100% owned valve manufacturing plant in India.
With this new project, AMPO POYAM VALVES increases its presence in India and reinforces its leadership in petrochemical applications.
