With a vision ‘To be a World Class Globally Competitive EPC and Total Solutions Consultancy Organization’, the Company is targeting higher business projections and closely looking at diversification avenues based on its strengths in design, engineering and project management capabilities.

New endeavours for diversification have identified that thrust needs to be given to overseas operations in EIL’s core areas including targeting medium to large size EPC projects.  Entering into new sectors e.g. Nuclear and Water and closely following sunrise sectors like Solar Power, Coal to Liquid projects constitute the diversification initiative.

Joint Venture Companies have been floated for tapping business opportunities. In this regard, TEIL Projects Ltd (TEIL), the joint venture company with Tata Projects is exploring business opportunities in EPC sector. TechnimontEIL Emirates, a JV with M/s Technimont is also in place to explore international business opportunities in the hydrocarbon sector.

EIL is looking at getting into the solar power project consultancy business. EIL plans to provide end-to-end solutions for the development of solar power projects. Meanwhile, EIL is  also planning to enter the gas-based power project consultancy business. Once EIL gets a foothold in gas-fired power consultancy business, it can also diversify into coal-based power consultancy.

The Company is also planning to tap the nuclear power consultancy business. We are trying to leverage our expertise to provide consultancy for balance of plant packages for nuclear power projects.

Earlier, EIL was in fertiliser project consultancy. It had provided consultancy services for various fertiliser plants, including National Fertilisers Ltd’s (NFL) Bhatinda and Panipat units. But subsequently, the Company had to quit this business in favour of other public sector consulting firms. Now that business environment has changed, EIL is planning to get back into the fertiliser consultancy business.

The company is also very bullish on the water management consultancy business. EIL is already working with Delhi Jal Board and looking to expand in this area. The Company is also planning to move into the infrastructure consultancy business. It has been assigned the task of conducting quality inspection for most flyovers coming up in Delhi.
