Houston, Texas (USA) – May 18, 2020
Elgin is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a set of three contracts totaling $13,000,000 from the Recently Merged Megha Engineering & Infrastructure Limited (“MEIL”) and Drillmec Drilling Technologies (Drillmec). This contract comes at an especially exciting time and supports the solids control and drilling fluid management needs of 27 drilling rigs. These rigs are being built to provide advanced land drilling technology for Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (“ONGC”) Limited, the national oil company of India.
Given Elgin’s own Indian-based technical support and manufacturing center in Baroda, India, this opportunity provides the best combination of in-country value combined with high-tech engineering and project management. Via this contract, Elgin will be providing high-frequency shale shakers and mud cleaners, jet shears and venturi mud hoppers, hydraulically-driven 16” decanter centrifuges, and vacuum degassers.
Elgin’s success with this project could not have been possible, if it were not for the technical and commercial support provided by its world-class supply chain partners, including Netzsch™ Pumps Germany, Italvibras™ Vibrators Italy, Eaton™ Hydraulics America, Nord™ Gearboxes Germany, Adalet™ America, Siemens™ Motors America, Kem-Tron Technologies Pvt. India, and Yaskawa™ American Inc. As noted by Mr. Emad Babri, Executive Director of Engineering for Elgin Separation Solutions – Industrials, “The support each of these organizations have shown in the face of such challenging macro-economic times has been remarkable. Our success as an organization is directly attributed to the continued technical and commercial support these organizations have provided and continue to provide. We will continue to measure the quality of our own products and services through the strength and sophistication of our manufacturing partners.”
