Project management, supervision, engineering, and installation of a 28″ modular pipe extrusion plant.
The client’s equipment was purchased internationally and had to be shipped to New Zealand.
The timing of this project was crucial, as the client had already contracted to supply pipes to multiple customers. The total duration of the project including engineering was set at nine months.
Intentus Engineering provided electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and project management.
The project included plant design inside 40-foot containers, site layout design and the mechanical and electrical installation of machinery, both plant and utilities.
Mechanical stress analyses were done to ensure the strength of the components and containers.
We supervised technicians, ensured a high-quality installation, and provided the project with the required documentation.
Intentus Engineering involved multiple stakeholders to ensure that the installation deadline did not exceed 6 months.
Shipments were arranged, making sure the machines arrived at the required time.
The stress analysis revealed that the floor load was too high. Therefore, Intentus Engineering assigned a third party to strengthen the construction of the building.
Documentation and reports were delivered and an operator training took place.
About the project
The modular extrusion plant can be moved to the client’s location.
Extruding pipe lengths from 6 meters up to 200 meters in one length.
Using lengths of 200 meters is a huge advantage as it saves 16 welds.
