L&T bids low for sulphur recovery project

19 July 2002

India's Larsen & Toubro is the low bidder at KD 4.3 million ($14 million) for a contract to increase the capacity of the sulphur recovery units at the Shuaiba refinery. Its offer is some 32 per cent lower than the next quote of KD 6.4 million ($21 million) submitted by Japan's Toyo Engineering Corporation (MEED 29:3:02).

Four companies priced the 24-28-month engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract. It calls for increasing the capacity of the three sulphur recovery trains to 400 tonnes a day (t/d) from 270 t/d through debottlenecking.

The US' Parsons Engineering Corporation has carried out the basic engineering and design for the scheme. The client is Kuwait National Petroleum Company.
