IOCL's Vadinar station.
IOCL's Vadinar station.
IOCL operates the 1870 km long Salaya-Mathura Pipeline from Salaya (near Vadinar) in Jamnagar district on the coast of Gujarat to bring crude oil to its refineries in Koyali (Gujarat), Mathura (Uttar Pradesh) and Panipat (Haryana). Two Single Point Mooring (SPM) systems are operated at Vadinar to unload the crude oil received from tankers including Very Large Crude oil Carriers (VLCCs) with offshore pipelines.
 
The pump supply was a part of an existing Salaya-Mathura Pipeline (SMPL) debottlenecking project.
 
The four ZLM II 638/07 pumps are designed for capacity up to 4455 m3/hr and head of 184 m.

The pumps were successfully commissioned in July 2016 and put into operation under the supervision of RP India’s service engineers. Since then, the pumping units have been successfully operating at the IOCL Vadinar pumping station.
