Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL), Mumbai, has let a contract to French firm Alstom T&D’s Indian division to provide power transformer packages for the continued expansion of the 1.24 million-b/d Jamnagar refining and petrochemical complex in Gujarat, India (OGJ Online, July 6, 2012; May 3, 2012).

Under the scope of the new contract, Alstom will design, engineer, manufacture, supply, supervise construction of, and commission 14 gasification service transformers and three generator step-up transformer packages as part of the third phase of RIL’s ongoing expansion of the Jamnagar complex, Alstom said.

The contract is valued at 1.06 billion rupees (€13 million), according to Alstom.
