Toyo awarded EPCC contract for ExxonMobil's new lubricants plant in India

Project is related to ExxonMobil's 159,000 KL/Annum lubricant manufacturing plant at Isambe, Maharashtra, India

  • By ICN Bureau | April 24, 2023
Toyo Engineering India Pvt. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyo Engineering Corporation, has been awarded a contract by ExxonMobil Lubricants Private Limited (EMLPL) for the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) of 159,000 KL/Annum lubricant manufacturing plant at Isambe, Maharashtra, India.
 
EMLPL is a wholly owned subsidiary of global energy major Exxon Mobil Corporation (EM), USA.
 
ExxonMobil markets a wide range of Mobil-branded engine oils, greases and lubricants for automotive and industrial sectors.
 
This project—ExxonMobil’s first greenfield investment in India—will manufacture high-performance Mobil-branded lubricants to meet growing domestic demand from industrial sectors such as manufacturing, steel, power, mining, and construction, as well as from passenger and commercial vehicle segments. Once operational, the plant will source a larger part of the raw materials and all packaging from local businesses, thereby contributing to the Indian government’s “Make in India” initiative. It is expected to begin commercial operations by the end of 2025.
 
EMLPL considers this investment a step towards bolstering its presence in the country.
 
By bagging the order for EMLPL’s lubricant manufacturing plant, Toyo-India has further consolidated its position as EPC player in the energy sector, especially for high-performance lubricants.
