Completion of revamp of VDU Fired Heater at IOCL Gujarat Refinery

Installation of Convection Module of VDU Fired Heater by Esteem

We are pleased to confirm completion of revamp project for VDU Fired Heater at Gujarat Refinery of Indian Oil Corporation Ltd.

Job involved replacement of convection modules of the furnace. The Convection section was supplied in hydrotested and refractory lined dried-out modules from Esteem's fabrication workshop at Baddi, HP, India.

Installation of the 15 mtr long convection modules was performed without removal of stack and structure of the Fired Heater.
Erection engineering, design & strengthening of existing Heater structure was done in-house.

Installation time - one module per day.

We thank IOCL for their immense support during the job without which the project would not have been such a success.
