Multidisciplinary project in LPG plant
Multidisciplinary engineering works were carried out successfully in the Gas Licuado Zaragoza, S.A’s Butane and Propane (LPG) storage and distribution plant, a company, that belongs to the Zeta Gas group. The multidisciplinary engineering project had a duration of 6 months for engineering and it is estimated that the construction project in Escombreras Valley, Cartagena, will take approximately 18 months..
Project goals and scope:
The goal of the project is to construct two industrial complexes, one for storage by means of spheres and the other, called factory, for filling and packaging bottles and tanks.
Both complexes will be located in Escombreras Valley, Cartagena, (Murcia). They will be connected to each other with the port area, from where all raw materials will be unloaded from a ship.
The project focuses on ship unloading and pumping by means of booster pumps (that then unloads materials on an 8-sphere storage), transfer and filling of tank lorries, tank wagons and bottles for industrial and household use.
Regarding this investment, IDEA has successfully carried out the review and optimisation of the entire project for the New LPG Plant in the factory, spheres and port areas.
Development of Multidisciplinary Engineering in the LPG plant:
- Basic and Execution Project of Public Works Engineering (See project)
- Detailed Engineering Project of Civil and Electrical Facilities, Instrumentation & Control, Mechanics & Piping and Processes. (See project).
- Legalisation Projects.
- Execution of Hazop Study.
- Drafting of Explosives Safety Documents (ATEX).
- Purchase requisition and specifications, request for quotations and comparative.
Complications and successes:
These facilities can launch more than two million butane cylinders onto the market. Through this plant, the Mexican company intends to enter the liquefied gas market.
Besides, the packaging and distribution factory will create107 new direct jobs, as well as another fifty indirect jobs.
During these 6 months of works, we have achieved facility automation, improving the client’s already existing plants. Except for the facility’s processing obstacles affected by serious accidents, (SEVESO).
