Larsen & Toubro’s construction division joined forces with one of its technology
partners to conduct the $25 million design, engineering, and commissioning of
both the superstructure and foundation for a pulverized coal injection building
at a blast furnace project in Vizag, India. The project goal was to double the
The project team used S TAAD.Pro for analysis and structural design of this
mammoth technological structure. The engineering team created the exact
model geometry needed in a short period of time and ahead of schedule. This
efficient structure contributed significantly to a carbon emissions reduction of
57,000 tons annually.
Wire Rod Mill
MECON provided services for the $135 million Wire Rod Mill at an integrated
steel plant in Visakhapatnam, India. The mill has interconnecting piping for
oxygen, nitrogen, chilled water, high-pressure water, instrument air, hydraulic
oil, lubricating oil, and grease. The piping is laid out by system and runs along
the entire mill at different levels and across various locations.
Using AutoPLANT, ProSteel, and Project Wise Navigator saved man-hours and
costs by allowing designers to explore multiple what-if scenarios. These analyses
reduced engineering time by nearly 30 percent. The software integration added
immense value through plant commissioning and handover to the client.
