Scope

Tata Consulting Engineers was entrusted with basic and detail engineering, procurement services, inspection and expediting and construction supervision services for the decorative paint plant.

Value added

'Pigging' technology solution helped reduce the complexity of the plant, simplified the piping lines and made it easier for plant automation. This involved the pigging for transfer of liquid raw materials and products. This technology helps transfer various chemicals through a dedicated pipe and is also useful in cleaning the pipelines. This helped to reduce the number of transfer lines thereby reducing the complexity of the plant around the equipment. By simplifying the piping requirements, it is possible to make the plant fully automatic. An automatic equipment cleaning system (automatic CIP) system was also part of the engineering plan.

The design engineering and planning was done on a fully-integrated 3D engineering platform with a client review interface. This helped in infusing predictability to the project. PDMS modelling of entire plant including civil, underground facilities, mechanical, equipment, piping, electrical and instrumentation also ensured greater accuracy and quality in the design.

Plant designed on zero discharge concept

Waste management solutions reduced fresh water intake. The 100% tertiary treatment and recycle of sewage reduced fresh water intake by about 40% .

Around 30% of total plot area has been ear-marked as green-belt zone.
