HPL will be able to leverage Lummus' proprietary know-how, process expertise and digital solutions to enhance the plant for peak performance and optimize OPEX."

The award is Lummus' first O3S™ award in India. Lummus will provide its digitalization, training and knowledge transfer services for HPL's ethylene plant. Previously, Lummus was awarded a contract for the license and basic engineering for the same unit, which builds on the 25-plus years HPL has licensed Lummus' technologies for its operations.
