ruwais refinery expansion project
Ruwais, united Arab Emirates
located 240 kilometers west of Abu Dhabi city in the United Arab emirates,
ruwais Industrial complex owned by Abu Dhabi oil refining company ( Takreer)
is undergoing a $10 billion refinery expansion. Upon completion, the project
will increase Takreer’s refining capacity by 417,000 barrels per day and nearly
double its production of transportation fuels. SK engineering & construction
was awarded the package for the crude oil distillation and associated
To contribute to early delivery of the design phase, SK engineering &
construction determined that more accurate plans would shorten decision-making time taken for design changes. S TAAD.pro was selected for reliability
and the ability to track change history. Time spent learning the software was
recovered during a more efficient analysis phase.
Tata Power Company Limited
extended Arm dH type tower
With headquarters in mumbai at chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Indian railway’s
central railway is a transport lifeline for mumbai. The railway’s traction
substation at Wadala required a power supply, which Tata power company
provided through a new segment of an existing transmission line.
To connect the transmission line to the substation, Tata power designed an
extended-arm tower using S TAAD.pro and the latest code requirement. The
complete 3D analysis was performed with more accurate results than using 2D
analysis, which helped to optimize member sizes. The 3D design with S TAAD.
pro took one week, compared to one month using 2D methods.
