  Xytel India

The world leader in design & turnkey supply of pilot plants

Xytel India was established in 1992 as a joint venture between Xytel Corporation USA and Kvaerner (Earlier Davy) Power Gas India Ltd. Xytel Corporation, USA is the world leader in design and turnkey supply of Pilot plants for Petroleum, Petrochemical, Polymer and other industries. It has successfully executed more then 800 projects involving 175 customers in 21 different countries. Kvaerner (Earlier Davy) Power Gas India is a premier project/process engineering organization, serving a wide range of petro chemical and metallurgical projects to medium scale specialty chemicals, drugs and intermediates.

"Xytel India makes hi-tech pilot plants that are used for R & D purposes. The plants that we set up promote technology and act as import substitutes," remarked
Mr B Shankar, President of Xytel India. He further elaborated, "We offer special skills in implementation of chemical projects at two levels. At one level, we design, construct and commission the pilot plants that are used for research and development on a turnkey basis. The other level is to provide engineering and construction services to mini plants or medium size projects."

For the pilot plants, which are normally skid mounted and modular in nature, the company offers activities from concept to commissioning. It develops initial schemes; Process & Instrumentation diagrams and size various equipments and components. The company procures these components from specialized
Indian / Overseas vendors. The components are then assembled together in order to construct a pilot plant. The company incorporates appropriate safety measures and ensures safe and reliable operation of the plant by employing the state-of-the-art control and data acquisition system. The PLC based control system facilitates collection of accurate data, and also its analysis and interpretation.

Once the pilot plant is ready, the testing of the plant is done at Xytels spacious assembly facility. The assembly shop is well equipped with all the essential infrastructure and testing facilities, which help Xytel to achieve high standards of quality.

After the factory testing, the pilot plant is dismantled, if required for transportation and shipped to the client. Finally Xytel at the client's location, commissions the plant. In case of a mini plant, the construction, testing and commissioning is carried out at the client's site.

Apart from the above main activity, Xytel also undertakes as a pre requisite for turnkey supply, a paid study to prepare pre-engineering document to convert
bench / lab scale data into pilot / mini plant design when very little information about the process is available. The exercise is also useful for estimating the project cost thus helping the client arrive at an investment decision.

In the last seven years Xytel has designed and built many cost effective pilot and mini plants for some of the leading private and public sector companies of the country. The public sector Indian Oil Corporation is, in fact, the biggest client of Xytle, which has built nine pilot plants for IOC's Faridabad research center from its Pune Unit. Said a satisfied Mr Shankar "This year we got four of IOC's six jobs." According to Mr Shankar, "Xytel India provides the vital link between R & D and industry. Our designs are highly customized. In fact, in the initial years of our operations, we were competing with foreign majors in India. Today we are planning to move into the Middle East market to compete with them there."

Xytle India has 25 employees on its rolls who are mostly engineers from the Chemical, Instrumentation, Software and Mechanical stream.
