During the year, the Engineering Divisions of EIL continued their
efforts towards providing optimized and value added services for all
ongoing projects consistent with the client requirements and objectives
of the Company. The various divisions maintained focus on key areas
like System Improvement and quality of deliverables, enhanced
productivity by adopting knowledge from past data, repeatability of
design, enhanced software application and implementation of Electronic
Data Management System (eDMS) alongwith improved information exchange
and communication systems resulting in lesser manual interfaces. Major
emphasis was laid on Automation and Standardization of systems,
implementation of Internal Audit and Monitoring and updation of
specifications standards and guides. A large number of innovative
processes, concepts and technologies were implemented for the first
time this year and some of them are as follows:
- Maiden Implementation of 66KV Gas Insulated Indoor Switchboards for a
project being executed in EPCM mode including development of
specifications, data sheets, offer evaluation and preparation of
contract specifications (Technical). Till recently, EIL had been going
in for 33KV as primary distribution voltage for all projects being
executed in conventional mode. For DORC''''s 20MMTPA refinery cum
petrochemical project, 66KV has been designated as the primary
distribution voltage across the plant in view of the large quantum of
Electric Power required to be handled and distributed because of the
mega size of the plant and future expansion plans for the same.
- Development of new specifications for XLPE insulated Fire Retardant
Low Smoke Extra 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 all projects. As a responsible corporate with concern for
global warming and carbon foot print, use of energy efficient motors of
min. 1E2 type and 100% LED fixtures for lighting of process / offsite
and utilities has been initiated. This has been made a standard
practice 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 of thermally sprayed Zn coating (TSZC)
with paint top coat on external surface mounded bullet is employed as
sacrificial type CP System. This requires no maintenance and
monitoring. For corrosion protection of steel components exposed to
water, bimetallic component (new construction) of cooler and condenser,
application of thermally sprayed aluminum coatings (TSAC) with top coat
Sealant on channel, tube sheet, flange faces, gasket seating surface is
used as sacrificial type CP System. This also does not require
maintenance and monitoring system.
Focused Services for corrosion protection and refurbishment of existing
- Revamping the Corrosion Protection system for LPG mounded storage
tanks at GPU, Usar.
- Corrosion Protection audit for Vizag Refinery.
- Pipeline Inspection and CIPL survey of five pipelines from Jawahar
Dweep to Pirpau, Mumbai Port Trust.

during the year are as under:
- GSM/RF based automatic water consumption data gathering system for
household water metering in AMRUT Project for nine cities of Odisha.
- Study Report on implementation of Wireless TETRA system in BORL
Refinery complex and its adjacent township. The study includes
integration of existing VHF based system with TETRA system.
