INDUSTRY

 

Ensenada Industrial Complex is one of the most important petrochemical industrial complexes in Argentina.

Its productive structure has numerous Processing Units. Their control was being done in Control Rooms distributed in the Plant’s heart.

Repsol YPF, as the current plant operator, on a permanent Risk Assessment decided to update the safety conditions within the plant, focusing control in a Bunkerized Control Room to achieve a proper and orderly shut down in case of high power explosions.

For this important project REPSOL YPF trusted COINTEC with field studies, the complementary basic design, the multidisciplinary general detail design, specially the anti-blast design, the preparation of the bidding documents and the assessment during the construction of this important Control Room design with the most modern transmission, control and remote data visualization technologies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zaragoza Clinic, of METRO Company (Mexico’s Collective Transportation System) was projected and put into service during the initial stage about 20 years ago; back then, these facilities managed to fulfil the needs of S.T.C. working population as in general medicine is concerned.

Due to the growth of METRO’s network, the service capacity was exceeded in spite of the modifications and extensions that had been done in past years. To provide a solution, a new policy for the construction of the adequacy and extension project of Zaragoza Clinic was implemented so as to fulfil effectively as well as in due course the existing demand.

COINTEC carried out the expansion’s constructive project, which implied to double the constructed area by adding a new building to the existing one while it was still fully operational.

The work included:

  • All the civil work of the new building, from foundations to finishing, carpentry and locksmith, including an underground cistern tank.
  • Hydraulic Installation and fire detection and extinction system assembly.
  • Sanitary and pluvial Installation assembly.
  • Electric Installation and ground system assembly.

Unilever Pond´s Plant is located in Civac city – Cuernavaca – México.

COINTEC did a full survey of the electric facilities of the plant, in electric substation nº 1, service and production area, as regards board disposition, strength distribution (tray and main conduits path) and unifilar diagrams.

COINTEC has also updated UNILEVER’s documentation with the information obtained from the surveys and with respect to changes done during plant shutdown.

COINTEC used these blueprints as a base for the second stage of the surveys, location of the missing boards, determination of conductor section and paths up to each section board in each area.

 

 

 

 

 

COINTEC’s staff’s professional training, along with the experience gained by the company in this field, constitute a starting point to an effective answer for the industrial problem.

COINTEC served to industries in a broad spectrum, from Heavy Steel Industry to Computer Industry.

The Services provided include technical economic feasibility studies, investment studies, industrial cost studies, preliminary and final executive projects.

The gradual and continuous provision of service in this area has allowed COINTEC to get an intimate knowledge of not only the most appropriate construction techniques to the industrial process but also the legislation governing the Industrial Investment in Argentina.

This knowledge ensures the provision of adequate service in terms of industrial Investment Projects framed in the International Export Promotion, Capital Foreign Debt and Binational Associative Relationships.
