How Venwiz vendors can aid in effective project execution using Turnkey solutions
The company designs, develops, and equips a turnkey project with all facilities under a contract. When the project is ready to operate a business, the company hands it over to the buyer complete and ready to use immediately.
Obviously, the entity responsible for building a turnkey project does it for the cost as agreed in the contract. The work of the company may include design, fabrication, installation, aftermarket support and technical service for the turnkey project.
Benefits of turnkey projects
Turnkey projects are mutually beneficial for both the company that develops them and the client that eventually takes over the projects. Some of the major benefits of turnkey projects are as follows:
- Cost saving: A client hires vendors that are willing to make projects at a fixed cost mentioned in the contract.
- Time saving: As there is no need for clients to assign their time, energy and resources on developing a facility, they get time to focus on their own businesses, while vendors who are experienced in the field can take on building the Turnkey soltuion.
- Hassle-free: As the vendor is dedicating their time and energy to build the turnkey solution for the project, the client is free from of legal and technical challenges - the vednor accounts for the same. This is an inherent feature of the project development, especially in India.
- Access to expert knowledge and technical know-how: A client running a particular business may not be an expert in building and operating a manufacturing unit for the same. Turnkey projects offer them a chance to hire expert vendors in the concerned field.
Strategies by Venwiz Vendors to help clients improve energy saving:
Case study in collaboration with M/s Bright Construction & Co
The vendor M/s Bright Construction & Co is an EPC (Engineering, procurement, and construction) Civil Contractor and works with large-sized infrastructure projects. They cover all aspects of civil construction work - from building construction to equipment foundation and structural fabrication works.
Between 2012-2014, M/s Bright Construction & Co were working for BHEL (Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited) on a project at OPaL Dahej. Their scope of work covered the entire civil work for the Black Start DG sets for the CPP (Captive Power Plant).
The client had to lay a one-piece foundation for their 8.3 MW DG set, weighing 130 MT dry, increasing to over 400 MT with oil and water, and 13M (L) x 4M (W) x 3M (H) in size
The single foundation required a unique solution, as heavy volume foundations not suitable, due to weight of 400+ MT.
The foundation weighed 400+ MT, requiring proper support during concreting to prevent breakage, hazards, costs, and delays.
M/s Bright Construction & Co along with client engineers studied the problem and decided to reinforce the shuttering support with densely packed adjustable pipes, thus creating the provision to adjust the support at varied zones differently.
The structure became self-supporting by running extra TMT bars connecting opposite side shutter plates, in accordance with Newton's 3rd Law. Vertical TMT bars embedded in the foundation raft were also provided for additional strength to the shutter plates. After the casting was set, these vertical bars were removed.
The team scheduled the concrete pouring for a Friday night to avoid traffic delays at the busy site and ensure safety. The team made sure that all other work would be suspended so that the RMC mixers could reach the site from the batching plant without hindrance.
Intensive and careful planning, innovation, and safety measures ensured successful completion of the work with the best finish of concrete. No leaks, bulges, or honeycomb appeared on the foundation.
Benefit to the client:
The PMC was delighted with the completed project that was delivered on time and without any cost overrun, due to the high-quality work. Further documentation, payment release to BHEL happened smoothly.
Case study in collaboration with M/s A S Automation:
A leading polyurethane (PU) foam company had an urgent requirement for an automation turnkey project, for which they were unable to find the right resources in their plant`s vicinity
Proximity and access play a vital role in project execution. Manufacturing companies located within the vicinity of industrial hubs find it easier to discover resources that can get the job done efficiently. Inversely, for companies located far away from industrial hubs, project execution becomes more complicated.
The client was using outdated software/hardware and manually controlling loops with controllers and relays.
The client faced limitations in improving the process and analyzing data due to outdated technology and manual control loops.
The client reached out to M/s A S Automation whose team was nearly 1500 km away from the plant. M/s A S Automation executed the project remotely with full automation, including report generation, alarms, user controls, and more.
M/s A A Automation, upgraded the entire process into a closed-loop control system using the latest technologies. Project executed successfully using closed-loop control systems (chemical mixing, temperature control, foam concentration, excess tank feed, and stage measurement).
Upon implementation, the client successfully came out of the legacy system. Usage of PLC (programable logic controller) gave them a technological advantage. This helped them in improving the process. The client was also able to view periodic reports, receive alerts and alarms, monitor user restrictions and controls etc.
The two factors affecting remote project execution:
- Client’s accessibility to competent vendors away from the plant.
- GST taxation policy for working in different states.
M/s A S Automation received repeat orders from satisfied clients.
