Servomex to provide analyzers to Gasification Project in India

October 16, 2014 - Servomex has been awarded a major contract by Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), the second largest publicly traded company in India, to provide O2 and CO measurement analyzer packages complete with sample handling systems for the world’s largest gasification project at RIL’s J3 Refinery in Jamnagar, India.

Virlesh Desai, General Manager for Servomex India, said: “Servomex has worked with RIL since 1997 to provide analyzers for various projects, collaborating with facilities in the UK and China to deliver solutions for various RIL projects, all of which have been very successful.  This proven capability of our world-class products and systems, combined with the capacity to implement and support them was a key factor in winning the contract, reinforced by Servomex’s establishment of a manufacturing presence in India which demonstrated our commitment to the region.  The latter has also led to discussions on further projects with RIL across its portfolio.”

The first package for the J3 project is for the provision of forty-three Servomex SERVOTOUGH OxyExact 2200 high specification process O2 analyzers, selected for its Safety Integration Level (SIL) 2 status and as ‘the best paramagnetic analyzer available’. The second package will deliver forty robust Servomex SERVOROTUGH SpectraExact 2500 photometric gas analyzers specifically chosen by RIL as its GFX technology and SIL compliance, evaluated as having excellent sensitivity in low range CO measurement.  

Desai adds:  “Discussions on various units and packages for J3 Refinery project took almost two years and there was lot of technical involvement carried out with Servomex experts in Mumbai, Houston and in conjunction with key representatives from Fluor  Corporation and RIL.   We worked very closely with RIL right from the project announcement stage to the detailed technical commercial offer, giving feedback and answering queries throughout the evaluation process.  It is a significant contract win, endorsing Servomex’s presence in the market against major competitors in the region. “
