GPIC Construction of High Pressure Steam Boiler Project

Project Background:

In 2011 GPIC decided to install new high pressure steam boiler to enhance performance of operations. This natural gas fired high pressure boiler was prefabricated by MACCHI. Technimont ICB (TICB) was the EPC Contractor for engineering, procurement and construction and MCSC was the General Contractor for all the construction activities. MCSC executed this project at a very high standard of quality.
