Significant cost advantages from using Non Welded Pipework systems.
Day one saw the three large tanks and the pumping skid craned into position on to the already prepared concrete slab.
Day two and Armada attended the site to support the Mitchell & Webber team with the installation of the Geberit Mapress pipe and fittings, having previously being trained and certified by Sarah Young from Geberit. During this time the electrical and infrastructure components were also being installed.
Day three involved finalisation of all the pipe-work, fittings and the electrical installation followed by the system being commissioned.
So unbelievably in three days the Mitchell & Webber engineering team had the site operational.
The main factor in the rapid commissioning of the plant was undoubtedly the use of the Geberit non-welded pipe-work system against traditional welded flanges and fittings. In conjunction with Trevor Rigden of Armada’s commercial team, Mitchell & Webber’s project management team planned the installation around Geberit 108mm and 76.1mm 316 stainless tube and Geberit Mapress fittings. Whilst the base cost of the materials were higher than that of standard scheduled tube in mild steel the other cost benefits were considerable. Time and ease of the installation being the main cost saving and benefit, as previously installations took from two to three weeks. Mitchell & Webber’s engineering project team began on Thursday morning and by lunchtime on Saturday the large fuel system of tanks, transfer arms and associated power sources, pumps, valves and pipe-work had been commissioned.
Trevor Rigden comments “The Geberit Mapress system is so quick and easy to install”. The pipe-work runs were installed on site with no welding required. The Geberit Mapress system is very flexible; the joints do not have to be pressed until the system is in place, so any adjustments to the pipe-work can be easily under-taken. As for future maintenance, the use of the 316 Stainless steel components means there is minimal risk of corrosion and no painting required. The Mitchell & Webber team can easily extend the system through the use of slip joints and a wide range of flanged and threaded fittings.
Armada Engineering is proud to associate itself with this innovative and cost saving non-welded pipe-work system. Geberit Mapress is a system Armada has supplied for both marine and industrial purposes; with Teekay Couplings, Victaulic’s groove system and WalformPlus for high pressure applications, Armada are market leaders in cost effective pipe-work systems.
