Dahej Plant (Under Construction)

Dahej is our newest plant and is currently under construction, with expected production to begin in early 2018. We plan to double our capacity, setting up an integrated chemical manufacturing facility at Dahej, Gujarat. The green field facility will facilitate the manufacturing of Dai-ichi’s existing product portfolio with significantly higher capacities, investing in state-of-the-art technology. Dai-ichi aims to capture additional markets in India, increase exports to existing regions, and open up new international markets. Dahej has been chosen as our new site, falling under the PCPIR region which has been set up by the Gujarat government specifically to cater to the chemical industry with all the necessary infrastructure in place like roads, drains, power and water.

Our Major Blocks Include:

  • PPD & Miscellaneous plant
  • Alkoxylation plant & storage
  • Admin, R&D
  • RM & FG Warehouse
  • Utility building
  • Boiler block
  • Effluent Treatment Plant
  • CCOE tank farm & fire water tank

We are introducing cutting edge technology from Buss Chemtech to engineer the EO plant. Dai-ichi will be the first company in India to introduce this technology on a large scale. The standalone PPD/MPP block will have 25+ stainless steel reactors with capacities from 4 kl to 12 kl, along with 4 glass lined reactors, catering to a wide range of products.

The entire plant will be controlled and monitored by a DCS system. By implementing DCS, the new plant will be highly digitized and automated with field instruments like flow meters, pressure barometers, temperature transmitters and level measuring instruments in all the three processing plants. Each plant will be integrated to a separate control room, as well as engineering and operating stations. The data of batch-to-batch processes will be stored on historian servers to control critical reactions and prevent cost escalation through better visibility of operations. This data driven decision making will help to optimize our operations, maximizing output and reducing delivery timelines.
