Haldiram – Snacks Manufacturing Relocation
The project aimed at relocating an existing snacks manufacturing line to a new location within a very short duration, to make space for installation of a new production line. Primarily, it encompassed planning, coordination, design and project management to safely dismantle and shift all the equipment and utilities.
The key challenges included dismantling, and shifting but also timely procurement of several minor items and services required.
- Study the existing Fryer line and related installations and plan for the dismantling, and shifting
- Prepare BOQ for material and services, and also ensure timely procurement in coordination with Haldiram Purchase
- Supervise the dismantling and shifting activities
Differentiated Value Creation
A process line encompasses not only the process equipment, but associated industrial services (steam, chilled water, compressed air, effluent, water, electricity, hvac, and other aspects of fire protection, etc.), and therefore, dismantling an existing, especially old, setup is a challenging task, to ensure nothing goes broken or in fault.
Our team of process, mechanical, electrical and food safety engineers were able to extensively understand and subsequently plan the task at hand, such that all could be taken up simultaneously, instead of sequential execution which would have taken 1-2 weeks, while we were able to complete the dismantling and shifting to resume the adjacent production activities within 2 days. All this was possible due to the insight and ownership qualities of our team, which led to intensive preparation before taking shutdown.
