Sarens Lifts DHT Reactor at HMEL in India
Sarens deploys its CC8800 and CC2600 to perform the lift at HMEL plant in Bhatinda, Punjab
November 2018

Sarens was commissioned by Offshore Infrastructure Ltd. on behalf of HMEL to lift a 380T DHT reactor at its site in Bhatinda, Punjab.        

HPCL-Mittal Energy Ltd. (HMEL), a joint venture of state-owned Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd. and Mittal Energy Investment Pte. Ltd., Singapore, is undergoing expansion of Guru Gobind Singh refinery in Bhatinda, Punjab. The 11 billion-rupee upgrading project to meet BS 6-quality fuel specifications at HMEL's Guru Gobind Singh refinery comes alongside and as part of the public-private partnership's broader plans to expand the manufacturing site's crude processing capacity to 11.25 million tonne/year from its current 9 million-tonne/year capacity. 

To undertake the project, Sarens deployed:

  • CC8800 (1250T)- SSL 60m
  • CC2600 (500T)- SH 30m 

The cranes were transported from Delhi which took 15days to reach the site. Once offloaded, the cranes were assembled safely in seven days, despite space constraint. A dead pipe line was identified, excavated, and also removed during the area preparation phase so that the lift and movement can happen smoothly. 

Our fifteen member crew upended the DHT reactor, measuring 38m long and 5.2m in diameter, with CC8800 as the main crane and CC2600 as the tailing crane. The reactor was lifted at a radius of 16m and the main crane slewed and marched to finally install the reactor. 

Operations Manager, India, Deepak Sharma says, "The erection went on in a synchronised and systematic manner and the client appreciated our team for a safe and timely execution of the project."
