During the year the Engineering Divisions of EIL continued their efforts towardsproviding optimized and value added services for all ongoing projects consistent with theclient requirements and objectives of the Company. The various divisions maintained focuson key areas like System Improvement and quality of deliverables enhanced productivity byadopting knowledge from past data repeatability of design enhanced software applicationand implementation of Electronic Data Management System (eDMS) alongwith improvedinformation exchange and communication systems resulting in lesser manual interfaces.Major emphasis was laid on Automation and Standardization of systems implementation ofInternal Audit and Monitoring and updation of specifications standards and guides. A largenumber of innovative processes concepts and technologies were implemented for the firsttime this year and some of them are as follows:
Maiden Implementation of 66KV Gas Insulated Indoor Switchboards for a projectbeing executed in EPCM mode including development of specifications data sheets offerevaluation and preparation of contract specifications (Technical). Till recently EIL hadbeen going in for 33KV as primary distribution voltage for all projects being executed inconventional mode. For DORC's 20MMTPA refinery cum petrochemical project 66KV has beendesignated as the primary distribution voltage across the plant in view of the largequantum of Electric Power required to be handled and distributed because of the mega sizeof the plant and future expansion plans for the same.
Development of new specifications for XLPE insulated Fire Retardant Low SmokeExtra High Voltage Cables suitable working voltage being enhanced from 66KV to 220KV.This was done in view of mega projects wherein 66KV or higher voltage is required.
Use of energy efficient electrical equipment/systems has been initiated in allprojects. As a responsible corporate with concern for global warming and carbon footprint use of energy efficient motors of min. 1E2 type and 100% LED fixtures for lightingof process / offsite and utilities has been initiated. This has been made a standardpractice for all projects being handled.
To provide protection from soil side corrosion of carbon steel mounded bullets(new construction) with operating temperature not exceeding 55 deg.C application ofthermally sprayed Zn coating (TSZC) with paint top coat on external surface mounded bulletis employed as sacrificial type CP System. This requires no maintenance and monitoring.For corrosion protection of steel components exposed to water bimetallic component (newconstruction) of cooler and condenser application of thermally sprayed aluminum coatings(TSAC) with top coat Sealant on channel tube sheet flange faces gasket seating surfaceis used as sacrificial type CP System. This also does not require maintenance andmonitoring system.
Focused Services for corrosion protection and refurbishment of existing facilities:
Revamping the Corrosion Protection system for LPG mounded storage tanks at GPUUsar.
Corrosion Protection audit for Vizag Refinery.
Pipeline Inspection and CIPL survey of five pipelines from Jawahar Dweep toPirpau Mumbai Port Trust.
