Two ceramic presses EVO relocated and installed in Yekaterinburg

Two presses EVO 3608/1800 SITI unloaded, relocated into the workshop and set into the pit

In September 2017 on request from Zavod keramicheskikh izdely (Ceramic plant, PAO) our Company unloaded two ceramic presses EVO 3608/1800 SITI from low loaders, relocated them into the workshop, tipped into vertical position and set them into the pit. Mass of one machinery unit is 65,000 kg.

Project operations

Our engineers and assembly workers executed the following operations within the framework of this project:

  • Elaboration of the Work Production Plan.
  • Installation of the GP125 gantry system.
  • Installation of the GP500 gantry system.
  • Press unloading from low loaders.
  • Press relocation into the workshop to the installation site.
  • 90-degree turn of the presses.
  • Press tipping into vertical position.
  • Press setting into the pit on a foundation.
  • Press leveling.

Rigging operations

Low loaders with the machinery could not enter the workshop, therefore our specialists unloaded the presses with the help of the GP125 gantry system outside the workshop at the platform in front of it. Then the presses were relocated into the workshop by means of special vehicles.   By means of the GP500 gantry system they were relocated and turned to 90 degrees inside the workshop. Then they were tipped into vertical position and set on a foundation.

Machinery involved at the site

Our specialists operated own hydraulic gantries and 120-ton-capacity rigging trolleys. Deployment of the GP500 gantry system made it possible to accomplish all the operations inside the workshop in a safe way, including press tipping.

Peculiarities of the operations at the site

During relocation and installation of the press machinery our specialists faced the following challenges:

  • Size of the area in front of the workshop gates insufficient for low loaders’ maneuvering.
  • Small size of the area inside the workshop insufficient for fulfillment of all the required operations with the presses.
  • The problem of the machinery allocation at the installation site caused by small size of the area.

The works were performed at an operating manufacturing facility. The operation areas were taped off. The machinery underwent thorough calibration check before rigging operations. The works were supervised by an OEM engineer whose shift costs considerable money.

Our specialists had to respond quickly to any alterations of the timelines concerning delivery of the presses for unloading. The works inside the workshop were accomplished in confined space, and our specialists had to act swiftly. 4 specialists were involved in the operations at the site. Their experience and skills allowed them to accomplish the tasks set forward by the Customer quickly, successfully and within the prescribed time limits.

How safety precautions and low cost were achieved

Our engineers developed quite complicated Work Production Plan that described in details possible allocation of the machinery required for safe and well-timed execution of the works.

To relocate the presses to the workshop we engaged special vehicles, i.e. our own modular trailer with pivoting wheels.  To optimize allocation and to fulfill all the required operations with the presses, including their tipping, a 500-ton-capacity gantry system was engaged. The engagement of the gantry system made it possible to perform rigging operations, as no truck crane with required load capacity could enter the premises and be deployed there.

Our Company has considerable expertise in assembling presses of different types, produced by different manufacturers. Over 15 years of work we have installed and assembled more than 70 presses in different industrial sectors.

In our Company you can order free cost calculation for relocation, installation and assembly of the presses and machines, as well as of any other technological machinery. To do so, fill in a short form on-line at our web-site or call us (see phone numbers in section Contacts).

General Electric gas turbine power units installed at Talakhovskaya and Mayakovskaya Central Heating and Power Plants in Kaliningradskaya Oblast

In the period from 6 OCT 2016 to 05 FEB 2017, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) set on a foundation four sets of General Electric gas turbine power units at Talakhovskaya and Mayakovskaya Central Heating and Power Plants (CHPP) in Kaliningradskaya Oblast. Each gas turbine power unit consists of three parts, i.e. turbine, generator and reducer. Total mass of the assembled equipment is 975 tonnes. GP500 hydraulic gantry system was used for operations. In the harshest conditions of the construction site of the electric power stations our specialists (100 TONN MONTAZH) showed their high qualification and skills that allowed them to carry out all the works in strict compliance with the work schedule moving from one station to another and using only one gantry system.

TR-24 cyclotron elements relocated and set to final position in Yekaterinburg

In the period from 25 DEC to 29 DEC 2016, on request from Innovative Implementation Centre of Irradiation Sterilization (being part of higher educational institution Ural Federal University) within the framework of the Nuclear Medicine Centre construction project, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) relocated the TR-24 cyclotron elements from the temporary storage warehouse to the installation site. The machinery from 500 kg to 25 tonnes was relocated to the installation site at different heights (from 0 to +6.0) with the use of a telescopic forklift and labour saving tools. This allowed us to carry out all the works inside rather small premises of the University.

Machinery lifted at Voronezh Cable Plant

In January 2017, our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) lifted and secured a cage (14 tonnes, 6 meters long) in confined space of an operating cable plant. The aim of the works was service repairs of the Customer’s machinery by the representatives of the French supplier. On completion of the works, the cage was installed back to its place within four hours after the Customer’s call. We used the smallest 60-tonne-capacity gantry system for these works. In 2015 our Company performed similar works for POURTIER S.A.S., Ltd.

NOVOFLEX (WINDMOLLER&HOLSHER) printing machine installed

On August 31, 2016 NOVOFLEX printing machine (Windmoller&Holsher, Germany) was successfully unloaded from the vehicles, relocated to the installation site and installed there. The works were carried out within the premises of SildAirKaustik, Volgograd, Volgogradskaya Oblast. The machine had been dismantled in Italy and taken to Russia. Therefore, no technical documentation was available for it. Our specialists worked together with the OEM engineering supervisors (Windmoller&Holsher), as well as representatives of the installation company which had dismantled the machine in Italy. The works were accomplished one calendar week ahead of the approved schedule.
