Sai Engineering Foundation planned a $6 million Beas-Kund hydropower project
on the Beas nallah stream in the Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh, India. The
project involved construction of a number of structures, and the goal was to
construct the two-stage surge shaft with pipes connecting these two surge
shafts to meet the land acquired by the developer.
Using HAMMER for analysis, the company proposed construction for the surge
shaft, met all design requirements, and quickly and efficiently tackled all design
obstacles for the project. During the design and analysis stage, the project team
used HAMMER calculations to assure surge protection, which would become
the value added throughout the life of the project.
Tata Power Company Limited
Shed for 250KW Biomass Project
Tata Power Company has long had a goal of having 25 percent of its power
generation capacity in the form of renewable energy. In pursuit of that goal, it is
designing a prototype for a 250-kilowatt capacity biomass gas power plant. Its
success will prompt the construction of another 1,000 units.
The layout was limited to a constrained space and required strict design and
safety norms. To reduce time and efficiently model and analyze the design,
STAAD.Pro was used throughout the project. The design was completed on
time, taking Indian design codes into consideration. Critical drawings for
industrial approval were generated based on the S TAAD.Pro results.
