3D Scanning to Fabrication

By | News | No Comments

ENGIE Fabricom recently carried out a major project to extend an existing steel platform. The platform was to support two new vessels with associated pipework and steelwork.

Due to the congested nature and height of various areas surrounding the proposed project, the decision was made to carry out a 3D laser scan. The scan was carried out in house by members of both our structural and piping teams, to ensure the project was covered from both of the discipline requirements.

Once the scan was completed, models were created and built for each discipline. The structural team use Advance Steel software and the piping team Plant 3D software, both by Autodesk.

The project models were then cross referenced within each other to show a live project.

After full checks were carried out, the models were sent to the client for input and approval, the data was then extracted from the respective models to allow fabrication.

ENGIE Fabricom awarded significant EPC contract at Saltend, Hull

By | News | No Comments

ENGIE Fabricom is delighted to announce that they have been appointed as the main Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor by Tricoya Ventures UK Limited, a subsidiary of chemical technology group Accsys Technologies, for the delivery of a new, innovative Tricoya® wood chip acetylation plant at Saltend, Hull.

ENGIE Fabricom is delivering the design and build of this pioneering new facility.  This exciting project is the first of its kind in the world and will deliver a significant £58 million approximate overall investment into the Hull and Humber region, as the city celebrates its year in the spotlight, having being awarded the UK City of Culture for 2017.

Utilising all of the Company’s expertise and skill sets, a project team encompassing process, procurement, mechanical, electrical, control and instrumentation, piping and civil discipline engineers, based at ENGIE Fabricom’s Immingham facility, have already started initial works with site establishment now complete and the site being de-watered and levelled.

A Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) verification has already been completed with the detailed design and engineering stages currently underway.  The project team are now on site at Saltend, creating up to 130 local jobs throughout the construction of the plant.

ENGIE Fabricom will primarily self-perform the project, encompassing all stages of the development from engineering and design, procurement of the plant’s main equipment, through to the construction, testing and commissioning.  Local construction company Clugston has been appointed by ENGIE Fabricom to provide collaborative support and undertake the civil engineering aspect of the project.  The ground was officially broken at the site in July 2017, with the ceremony attended by representitives from the Tricoya Consortium (which includes Accsys, BP and Medite), ENGIE Fabricom, Hull City Council, South West Holderness Ward and the local team of Tricoya Ventures UK Limited.

This extensive project is due to be completed in Spring 2019 and once operational, the plant will create approximately 30 full time jobs.

ENGIE Fabricom in the Netherlands is also currently progressing with the expansion of Accsys Technologies’ Accoya® plant in Arnhem.

Wichard Huigen, Chief Executive Officer of ENGIE Fabricom, said: “We are delighted to secure this major contract which allows ENGIE Fabricom to demonstrate our expertise and experience in both engineering and construction projects. This is a significant step forward for us and will in turn enable us to further develop our EPC capabilities.

“This development provides a substantial boost to the region and ENGIE Fabricom is thrilled to be part of this major investment.  The project will have a positive effect in regards to job creation throughout the build, and as such we have already strengthened our resource pool of highly respected and talented engineers.  We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Tricoya team and to further establishing ourselves as the partner of choice within the EPC market.”
