ONGC Mangalore Petrochemicals Limited (OMPL) assigned Larsen & Toubro the engineering, construction, and procurement for its Aromatics Complex in Karnataka, India, with L&T Chiyoda Limited (LTC) providing the engineering analysis and UOP serving as the process licensor. The facility would produce 905,200 tons per annum (TPA) of paraxylene and 273,200 TPA of benzene and was to be completed in 33 months.
The project required static, wind, and seismic analyses of piping systems plus two-phase and flange leakage analyses. Pipe diameters ranged from 2 to 64 inches operating at a temperature of up to 578ºC and 78 kg/cm2 pressure.
“CAESAR II’s user-friendly graphic interface, simple modeling techniques, and excellent simulation capabilities helped us confidently develop our project deliverables in a very tight schedule with minimum efforts. We were able to meet client requirements while saving time and reducing costs, completing the work on schedule,” said Manoj Devani, pipe stress engineer at LTC.
LTC received the 2015 CAESAR II Drivers of Success Runner-Up Award for its use of the software. The annual Drivers of Success competition recognizes innovative applications of Intergraph products, impressive project results, and significant benefits from collaboration among disciplines and the integration of the products.
