PIP Supply

Design, procurement, pre-fabrication and construction supervision for BPCL West Bengal Haldia LPG terminal.


World-class thermal performance and ability to bury the PIP in congested corridor with national highway, national rail track and populated areas was critical for BPCL. Fast track execution was required to meet Clients agressive schedule.

PIP installation was conducted during difficult and unpredictable Covid-19 pandemic, with related lockdown / stoppage of the works prior completion.

Key to success

Anticipation and Flexibility was required to adjust to schedule’s constraints and modification. Engineering anticipated Procurement requirements and advance long-lead delivery schedule. All detailed guidelines and specifications were accelerated to facilitate operations and contractor’s training for pipe-in-pipe assembly activities. The PIP was designed to ease assembly with modular construction activities.

In the face of pandemic and travel restrictions, ITP immediately implemented a remote quality control process to enable the client to continue his installation operations with local quality control on site.
