October 2009: In Cooperation with Hitachi Power Europe GmbH IMR has successfully introduced different Software-Solutions from the Piping Solution of Intergraph PP&M Germany GmbH. With the help of SmartPlant Isometrics based on the ISOGEN-Standard 80 KKS within small bore piping have allready been designed.
The KKS respectively the Isometrics and the associated bill of material after *.idf import or own construction in Isometrics are available both as paper print out and as file in the formats *.pdf, *.dgn, *.pcf, *.dwg and *.pod.
The control over process engineering , material logistics resp. provisioning , welding tracking, progress controling and quality asurrance are expedited within the software PiCoDa (PipingControllingDatabase). In this database all engineering, procurement and construction relevant information of our customer and of ourselves are e.G. imported as Excel-Import and serves apart from the central supervision of these processes also as automated input for the customizable text fields of the Isometrics. Furthermore an automated documentation according to the european pressure equipment directive is provided.
The up-to-date advantages of digitalized engineering documents and the centralized management via our IT-infrastructure based on our new part HP/ part Cisco server in Hamburg and on our Network Attached Storages in the on-site LAN’s are forging ahead and are available for our customers for their engineering and controlling processes in so to speak real-time.
In May 2009 auditing of procedures Rohr 33,7×8.0mm and 396*30mm for the material X 10 CrWMoV 9-2 material- Nr. 1.4901 were tested through weld verification as well as NDT (company Pockrandt www.pockrandt-tqs.de) and through destructive testing (Germanischer Llyod Prüflabor, Herne).
In cooperation with the TÜV Nord (Western area, Essen region, www.tuev-nord.de) the Vallourec&Mannesmann basic material with BÖHLER-filler material was welded with ours Kemppi 4000 by our experienced GmbH-cooperant following instructions given by our welding expert (EWS/IWS) Mr. Ingo Meiners. Preheating, controlled and low carbon annealing (so-called „Soaking“) and stress-free annealing were carried out by the company Inpro GmbH, Mors (www.inpro-moers.de).
In June 2009 in the construction of Block 10 of Walsum thermal power station, workings on the pulverize fuel ash management were incorporated with workings on fluidization management. Besides prefabricated spools, the welds for assembling were carried out as adaptations at the locality.
Our new prefabrication area conveniently situated just next to the motorway (Autobahn) A1 will be constructed in Autumn/Winter 2009. Prefabrication of spools for the new construction sites in Northern Germany will take place there.
