Interarch Delivered Greenfield Manufacturing Facility for SMS Siemag India Pvt Ltd in Odisha
Interarch Building Product delivered a greenfield manufacturing facility for SMS Siemag India Pvt Ltd in Odisha. With an investment of approximately Ç31 million and covering an area of 23,000 sq m, SMS Seimag aims to expand the current capacity in India.For SMS Siemag, this new manufacturing facility is an important step in tapping the growing steel market in India.
Interarch´s scope of work for this project involved complete turnkey solutions for the projects, starting from design and engineering, manufacturing of 3,000 MT of structural steel and roofing, logistics and delivery of projects within a stipulated time-period of seven months.
There were a series of challenges faced by the Interarch team - from design and engineering to execution of project at the remote location in Khurda. The designing of the building involved over 20 cranes to be operational in tandem ranging from 20 mt to 60 MT. Another accomplishment achieved by Interarch was the execution and delivery of the project on time at a remote location. Due to strong certified builder network, workmen from outside the state were employed to get the job done. Interarch pre-engineered metal buildings are tailor-made to a customer´s needs and custom-designed to meet exact requirements. In this building as well, due to the triangular shape of the land, the roof monitors had to be installed in transverse orientation rather than longitudinal orientation, as manufacturing machines were installed accordingly.
The new manufacturing and service workshop will focus on the supply of steel works equipment and tailored services to grow the market in India. The range of equipment made at the workshop will include electric arc furnaces, secondary metallurgy plants like ladle furnaces and RH (Ruhrstahl - Heraeus) plants, and BOF plants, including cooling stacks for gas cleaning systems.
The project is designed as per the latest IS design codes (working stress design) considering all external factors such as wind velocity and seismic zone. The lateral forces resulting from the seismic or wind loads are resisted by diagonal bracing and jack portals at intermediate column locations.
The pre-engineered building has provision for multiple crane brackets across different width modules and loads. All cranes are cab-operated, except for the monorail cranes.
Due to the heavy nature of the columns, laced columns arrangement has been provided. The angle web members of the laced columns allow use of gusset-less welded connections, which minimised the fabrication cost. The building is provided with a full width canopy of 5 m projections on both end walls. A lean to building of dimensions 12.5 m X 90 m is attached to the main building. The building is designed as per IS 800. The seismic zone is III and the design wind speed is 50 m per second.
