New Delhi: Mumbai-based Aarvi Encon, a manpower outsourcing firm, has signed contracts to provide 2,000 engineers to oil companies, including a large PSU and multiple private firms, for implementation of refinery projects related to rollout of BS-VI fuel.
“Based on the contracts signed by us a couple of months back, these 2,000 trained engineers will be provided by us to oil companies to work on BS-VI projects and refinery expansion projects,” Aarvi Encon’s Executive Director Jaydev Sanghavi told ETEnergyworld.
The company said the transition to higher efficiency BS-VI fuel would lead to upgrading of operations, machine and infrastructure frameworks across the 16 refineries in the country, resulting in the demand of 2,000 engineering jobs which Aarvi will help the companies to fill.
“For the projects, the unit operations for the existing 16 refineries across the country need large-scale upgrades amounting to between Rs 4,000 to 5,000 crore,” the company said. Compared to the earlier levels of sulphur and benzene in BS-IV fuels, BS-VI has much lower sulphur and benzene content.
The government had rolled out BS-VI fuel in the national capital in April 2018 and aims to expand the coverage of the cleaner fuel to cities across the nation by 2020.
Under the contracts, Aarvi Encon will deploy engineers specialising in project, design and planning to supervise contractors at the refinery sites. The refining company, PMC and contracting companies will each require over 100 engineers per site to complete the necessary upgradation in the stipulated period of time.
For the BS-VI projects, Aarvi is hiring candidates in the domains of technical manpower, technicians and operators mainly falling under the profiles of Mechanical, Electrical, Instrumentation and Chemical Engineers.
