L&T delivers critical equipment to global clients during lockdown

Dubai: The Heavy Engineering arm of Larsen & Toubro ensured dispatch of critical reactors, coke drums and sub-assemblies of nuclear fusion reactor for their global clients during the lockdown period in India from the beginning of last week of March.
During this period, a final consignment of 4 (out of a total package of 16) ARDS Reactors for refinery modernisation project for clean, environment-friendly fuels to ADNOC, Abu Dhabi were delivered by the company. The final 4 coke drums part of a package of critical hydrocracking reactors for Duqm Refinery in Oman and 2 ethylene oxide reactors for LPCL Petrochemical Complex in China were delivered on time.
The sub-assemblies for International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) France were delivered on an urgent basis during Lockdown to ensure the uninterrupted assembly of Cryostat in Reactor pit in southern France.
