TechnipFMC inaugurates India yard
DAHEJ, February 7, 2017 – TechnipFMC’s Indian division announced on Tuesday that it had successfully launched a modular manufacturing yard on India’s west coast in Gujarat state.
The company will manufacture ethylene furnaces, fired heaters, and other modular devices, it said in a statement, adding that the project was inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 2014 “Make in India” initiative.
“This event celebrates two years of effort put in by the site team to build a best-in-class yard where we will manufacture a product line from proprietary technology,” the managing director of TechnipFMC’s Indian division Bhaskar Patel said in a press release.
“This will help our clients increase domestic production of petroleum products and minimize imports; thereby making India more self-reliant in the energy industry.”
