Nakoda taps Mott MacDonald for polyester plant

Mott MacDonald has been appointed as detailed design engineer by Nakoda Limited for the expansion of the company's polyester facility located in Karanj, in the Surat district in the state of Gujarat, India. The appointment follows on from the consultancy's detailed technical economic feasibility study which was completed last year.

Nakoda is one of the largest manufacturers of polyester yarn and has been processing fully drawn yarn, partially oriented yarn (POY) and textured yarn for a number of years. The INR 2340 million investment will see Nakoda manufacture additional specialty products, allowing them to produce the entire range of polyester yarns, and will see an increase in spinning capacity from 90,000 tonnes per year to 140,000 for the domestic and international markets.

Mott MacDonald is providing detailed design engineering services for the plant expansion, which includes all architecture, civil and structural, mechanical and electrical, plumbing, process and instrumentation aspects. The design includes heat recovery systems from gas turbine exhausts which will run vapour absorption machines for air conditioning. There will also be substantial energy saving for using direct melt transfer from continuous polymerisation (CP) to POY spinning facility.

Ghanshyam Shah, Mott MacDonald's project director said: “Demand for yarn has been growing at a rate of 8-9% annually. With a shortage of yarn procession and weaving facilities, a number of textile parks are being set up in Gujarat. Surat in south Gujarat produces around 60% of the country's total synthetic yarn and Nakoda has emerged as a key manufacturer and trader of POY, polyester textured yarn and polyester filament yarn.”

“We are delighted to have been appointed by Nakoda to help them with their expansion programme. We've also supported them during the development of their recently completed new 400 tonne per day CP plant,” Ghanshyam added.
