Our specialists (100 TONN MONTAZH) implemented a complicated project of SACMI press body replacement (Italy) at Samarsky Stroyfarfor in July 2016. Confined condition of the operating plant did not make the implementation of the project easier. Dismantling of the old press body and installation of a new body were performed with the use of a 125-ton hydraulic gantry system. The mass of the press is 56 tons.
In June 2016 our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) unloaded, de-preserved, performed SKD assembly and installed four gas-generator plants Wartsila onto vibration mounts in Kazakhstan. Due to the use of a GP500 gantry system, the primary contractor managed to start installation of the equipment directly on completion of installation of load-bearing metalware of the building with simultaneous installation of the sandwich-panels. This technology considerably decreased the timelines of the works implementation. Our designers implemented an interesting technical solution, that enabled them to further accelerate the works. Prior to use the trawl for unloading, a section of the gantry tracks had been dismantled, and after the load was lifted and the trawl left the premises, this section was installed back to its place and the gantry system started to move along it with the load. The works were rather difficult for execution due to simultaneous implementation of construction and installation works at the site, as well as due to necessity to keep up with precise positioning of the gas-generator plants onto vibration mounts (1 mm tolerance). Thorough engineering of the operations, experience in handling Wartsile equipment and well-coordinated teamwork enabled our Company to perform all the operations in accordance with an approved work schedule.
In July 2016 our Company (100 TONN MONTAZH) unloaded, shifted, lifted and set to final position two pod drives (manufactured by Steer Prop; 163 tons each) at the production site of Severnaya Verf dockyard in St.Petersburg.
To set the pod drives to final position, roll and trim must be created in confined space under the stern of the vessel. The works are complicated due to the presence of small and large propellers both installed on each pod drive. The works were accomplished in accordance with the approved schedule. It must be noted that this was the second project of pod drives installation, and the Customer again expressed his gratitude for our professionalism.
On June 15, 2016 mechanical press SIMPAC (Korea, model MC2-500) being part of a precision blanking system was successfully unloaded from vehicles, shifted to the installation site and assembled at the Czech Brano Group Vehicle Components Plant in Kstovo, Nizhegorodskaya Oblast. Gantry system GP-125 was used for the press installation. Due to limited ceiling height, the tension rods were installed simultaneously with the installation of the press head on a foundation (such an installation scheme was applied for the first time ever). The tension rods were tightened and the monoblock underwent precision check. The Customer expressed his gratitude to our installation workers for their team work and professionalism.
On May, 26 our specialists completed the lifting works and the works of holding the equipment in suspended position during repair operations with preservation of geometric integrity of the equipment.
Since the equipment of the customer represented a complicated system consisting of five axial wheels, lifting and preservation of geometry required slings of the same length. Mass-dimensional characteristics of the load were 9,000х4,000х3,000 mm, mass 25 tons. Holding the equipment in suspended position was carried out by means of a GP125 gantry system, which enabled the customer to fulfill repair operations in the shortest possible time with no production downtime.
In April 2016 our Company (100-TONN MONTAZH) dismantled a 15-25 turning-and-boring machine at the production site of EVRAZ NTMK (EVRAZ Nizhny Tagil Metallurgical Plant, OAO) in Nizhny Tagil (Sverdlovskaya Oblast).
Lifting capacity of the overhead cranes turned to be insufficient for the required operations, therefore a GP 60 gantry system with special tools was applied for the works. The works were accomplished in four stages: dismantling, transportation, installation and setting to work under supervision of EVRAZ NTMK specialists.
It should be noted that prior to setting the machine to work, the CUSTOMER’s land-surveyor had developed an as-built drawing for installation of the machine parts, which led to ideal installation of the machine.
To embrace new challenges, our Company within the period from November 9 to December 12, 2015 assembled a paper bags production line. These paper bags are designed for construction materials. Within the premises of the plant under construction Segezhskaya Upakovka in Salsk, Rostovskaya Oblast, together with German installation supervisors from Repack company, our specialists unloaded Windmoller&Holscher equipment (Germany), shifted it to the workshop and installed it there. All the activities followed the schedule and met the requirements set forth by the manufacturer.
Within the period from December 5 to December 25, 2015 our specialists on request from OOO GlavStroyProject (Rostov) mounted printing press ONYX (Italy) within the premises of Segezhskaya Upakovka Plant under construction in Salsk, Rostovskaya Oblast. Gantry system GP125 was used for the operations. The distinctive feature of this project was lifting of a 15-m bridge connecting the sections of the printing press.
In August 2015 our Company (100 TONNE MONTAGE) dismantled, relocated and mounted pouring and thermoforming lines at Avtokomponent Plant in Syzran. The works had to be accomplished within short timelines during AvtoVAZ company holidays (Customer of Avtokomponent Plant).
The following operations were carried out within the framework of the project: cases of the pouring modules were took to pieces, gantry robots and presses were dismantled; then they were loaded onto transport trolleys, shifted into a new workshop, assembled and mounted. Thermoforming lines were
also dismantled, loaded onto transport trolleys, shifted into a new workshop and mounted. All the works were accomplished in due time.
Within the period from August 10 to August 14, 2015 our specialists dismantled manipulator Clansman, shifted it and mounted it within the premises of Tikhvin Freight Car Building Works Plant (TVSZ) in Tikhvin, Leningradskaya Oblast. The works were performed in a very confined space with application of two supports of GP125 gantry system. Our specialists managed to complete the works ahead of schedule, which allowed the personnel of the plant perform setting-to-work operations and minor repairs of the manipulator before the start of production.
