Observation

The customer wants a valve installed at the outlet of a steam turbine, between the condenser and the steam turbine. The canal is 1600 mm across.

Assignment

  • Advise the customer in choosing the right valve. 
  • Install the valve in the outlet canal of the turbine, paying particular attention to minimal process impact.

Implementation: 

Phase 1: choice of valve 

  • ACD specialists draw up specifications the valve must meet 
  • Market research is conducted to find out which suppliers comply with the set specifications 
  • A call for tender is written and sent out 
  • ACD negotiates with suppliers, looking after the customer’s interests

Phase2: Engineering 

  • The space concerned is measured with 3D measurement techniques and charted according to a 3D model 
  • The required components (valve, supporting steel Construction, rerouting of the tubing) are fitted into the 3D model The required drawings are made on the basis of the 3D model
