The group can be relied on creativity, quality and dependability to deliver the project on time, within budget and with minimal disruption of operations.

 

 

Discussed below one of many case analysis done by the group.

Case In Focus: Rehabilitation Work of Civil Structures at Cement Plant, Kymore, MP

Kymore cement works is one of the largest cement manufacturing unit in India, established in1927. Over a period of time deterioration in concrete and structural members occurred due to very extreme exposure conditions. SSPI has previously worked with ACC and successfully completedprojects at Lakheri, Chaibasa. Hence SSPI has given the responsibility to Rehabilitate Civil and Steel Structure at Kymore.

Scope of work performed by SSPI.

– Bad / damaged concrete was removed and corroded steel was cleaned and provided with anti-corrosive treatment. Reinforcement supplemented where effective dia. was reduced substantially.
– Cover concrete was made up using PMM, highly damaged RCC members were jacketed using Micro-concrete, honeycombed and porous zones were grouted with cementitious / epoxy grouts.
– Entire RCC is treated with concrete penetrating bipolar corrosion inhibitor and further coated with an anti-carbonation coating to provide protection from chloride ion penetration, carbonation and weathering effects.
– Structural steel is cleaned and coated with enamel paint. Steel members added as per consultants design.
– Purlins and roof sheets were changed for gypsum gantry.
– Clinker silo top slab is strengthened and made watertight using grouting, PMM, micro concrete and sophisticated method like DPS, deep penetrating sealant.

Key Highlights

ACC has very clear and strict guidelines about safety; Entire work force of SSPI, all the tools and tackles were checked for safety and audited periodically. SSPI followed all the guidelines and achieved zero lost time incidence (LTI) due to accidents. Entire repair activities are performed while factory was operational, most of the activities involved working on heights these require very precise planning and execution, which SSPI achieved.

Case In Focus: Structural Repairs & Retro-fitting Works of Cooling Towers & Other Damaged Structures at 2×125 MW Akrimota Plant at Bhuj, Gujarat

GMDC has 2 X 125 MW Thermal Power Project at village Nani Chher, Taluka Lakhapat, Dist. Kutch in Gujarat State. The water requirement for the power plant is taken from the nearest Kori Creek through a 1.4 KM long sea water intake channel. The excessive seawater environment has deteriorated the structure over the period of many years. The structural elements have exposed reinforcement and there is spalling of cover concrete. SSPI has won the competitive bidding for Structural Repairs and Retrofitting work of the 2 x 9 cells of Cooling tower units at Akrimota Plant.

 

 

Scope of work

– Bad / damaged concrete was removed and corroded steel was cleaned and provided with anti-corrosive treatment. Reinforcement supplemented where effective dia. was reduced substantially.
– Cover concrete was made up using High Strength Fiber Reinforced Thixotropic Repair Mortar, highly damaged RCC members were jacketed using Micro-concrete, honeycombed and porous zones were grouted with cementitious / epoxy grouts.
– Entire RCC is treated with concrete penetrating bipolar corrosion inhibitor and further coated with anti-carbonation coating to provide protection from chloride ion penetration, carbonation and weathering effects.
– Providing & Applying High Strength Fiber Reinforced Thixotropic Repair Mortar
– Rebuilding Walls Using Micro Concrete M-40 Grade
– P/A Interpenetrating Polymer Network Coating System(IPNET)
– Corrosion Mitigation
– Structural Steel Work
– Waterproofing Work

Key Highlight Project by SSPI:

The site is located in the remote area with saline weather conditions. The velocity of wind is too high to obstruct the working conditions. SSPI has been successful in the execution of such a challenging job. The safety and quality team has been effective on the project. The project is being executed by SSPI with timely delivery milestones as per the requirement of the client.
