India: Chemical Jacobs Contributes to Successful Commissioning of Lubrizol Plant
Jacobs Engineering Group Inc has announced that it provided services for The Lubrizol Corporation’s recently commissioned Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC) compounding plant in Dahej, India.
Dahej/India – The plant, which has capacity to produce 55,000 metric tons of compound annually, supports the growth of Lubrizol’s emerging FlowGuard, BlazeMaster and Corzan businesses in South Asia, the Middle East and East Africa. The plant is the first major investment in India for US-based Lubrizol.
Jacobs was associated with the plant’s construction from the conceptual design phase through the basic engineering and total installed cost (TIC) estimate. It subsequently provided detailed engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for the entire project.
The plant’s chlorinated polyvinyl chloride unit was mechanically completed within the targeted project schedule of 20 months and within five percent of the TIC estimate, along with cost savings of 34 percent of engineering fees, thus meeting overall project objectives of Lubrizol.
