L&T Opted as Partner for Perdaman Chemicals & Fertilisers to Build Urea Plant in Australia
L&T announced on August 21 a "significant" order from Perdaman Chemicals & Fertilisers to build a 2.3 million tonne urea plant in Australia. When completed, this facility will be the largest urea plant in Australia and one of the largest in the world, according to the company.
L&T stated that it was a "significant order" but did not reveal the deal value. A significant order is one with a value between Rs 1,000 and Rs 2,500 crore.
"We've adopted a policy of not disclosing commercial details of contracts because the value can change by the time of completion," SN Subrahmanyan, Chairman and Managing Director-Designate of L&T Group, explained.
The contract was awarded by Perdaman's Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contractor, the Italian firm Saipem & Clough.
The Energy Hyrdocarbon contract awarded to L&T includes the fabrication and supply of process and piperack modules for a 2.30 MT per annum urea plant as well as a 1.3 MT ammonia unit.
L&T Heavy Engineering has received orders for the project's urea equipment packaging.
The facility will be built on Western Australia's Burrup Peninsula and, when completed, will be the largest urea plant in Australia and one of the largest in the world, Perdaman Chairman Vikas Rambal told reporters here.
