Jotun India and Jotun China have secured a contract to provide coatings for the Reliance Sasan 6 x 660 MW Ultra Mega Power (UMPP) Project—the first coal-based UMPP project in India and the latest in Jotun’s fast-growing cross-border project portfolio.
In China, 90,000 metric tons of turbine house steel structure will be coated with Jotun coatings. That is in addition to six sets of BTG (boiler, turbine and generator), for which the supply of coatings has already started.

A year ago, Jotun China Protective Management established a dedicated team to take care of international engineering companies and Chinese EPC companies active with cross-border projects. Jotun attributes the team’s success to what it calls “the 3Cs”: communication, commitment and cooperation. The company says each project team identifies key parties in one country who can lead to projects in another country.
With the help of Jotun Australia, Indonesia, Vietnam, India, Singapore and Philippines, U.A.E, Jotun Korea and other sister companies, Jotun China has secured and supplied a dozen cross-border projects in recent years.
These include Australia’s Karara Mining project; Indonesia’s Tanjung Awar-Awar 2x350MW power plant project; Vietnam’s Ca Mau Fertilizer plant project; India’s Kamalaka 3x350MW power plant project; the Philippines’ Mariveles 2x300 MW power plant project; the U.A.E.’s Takreer Ruwais Refinery Expansion plant project; and Brazil’s Arcelor Mittal Monlevade project.
Jotun China is forecasting growth within China in the energy, hydrocarbon processing and infrastructure industries and more growth in international engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts.
