Each project begins with the preparation phase. The project is thoroughly analyzed in terms of relevant technical and organizational settings. At this stage, a project management plan and a detailed schedule are created, as well as a risk management assessment.
This is an activity of key importance in dismantling and relocation projects. The proper marking of industrial facilities before the dismantling phase is necessary to successfully carry out the assembly process in the target location. Match marking is preceded by the planning phase in which all objects are divided into sectors and subsectors. Having completed the division, appropriate codes are matched to the relevant sectors. The coding of individual parts and devices is made using the most appropriate methods for a given device. Marking plays a key role in any relocation or dismantling process – any error or missing codification of a single part can result in significant difficulties during re-assembly.
3D scanning is usually performed right after the match marking process and is aimed at improving the re-assembly process. Thanks to 3D scanning, high dimensional accuracy is achievable. The scanned 3D model can be used to create technical documentation, projections, create documentation and 2D plans, analyze deformations, create virtual walks of the facility, reverse engineer as well as for many other purposes.
Accurately conducted dismantling process ensures that re-assembly will be as seamless as possible. Professional dismantling services consists of, among other, mechanical, hydraulic and electrical phases of dismantling, cutting and disconnecting. Any mistake made during the planning, marking and dismantling phase may cause the reassembly to generate additional costs. In the worst case scenario, the reassembly may not be possible due to incorrectly performed activities during the dismantling process.
Crane services are an important part of a dismantling project. The phase of lifting elements that require crane services calls for the determination of the appropriate method of carrying out this undertaking, i.e. a comparative study, as well as a plan for the lifting phase. In those cases where cranes are not able to perform the task, whether due to physical limitations (e.g. limited space) or of economic nature (non-cost-effective method), hydraulic cranes are used. Planning crane services is associated with a large amount of conceptual work aimed at implementing the project in a safe, efficient and, most importantly, economically effective manner.
The re-assembly of devices, a production line or a whole industrial plant is much more efficient and safe when the devices installed are free of soot, grease or rust. Cleaning with dry ice, in comparison to cleaning with water or sandblasting, means that there is no risk of corrosion or dusting on the cleaned device, which is particularly important in industries characterized by very strict cleaning standards. Cleaning with dry ice is also less time-consuming than traditional methods and does not require any specific protection of the work environment. The process itself is environmentally friendly and minimizes the risk of surface damage.
The phase following the lifting stage with the use of gantries or crane services is packaging. Machines and devices subject to relocation usually have non-standard dimensions, which is why it is necessary to design and build special transport crates. Transporting the elements in appropriate conditions also translates into minimizing the risk of their damage.
Loading and transport is the final part of the dismantling process and the penultimate phase of relocation services. The loading stage consists of the following activities: - unloading empty containers from the trucks; - loading the secured devices or machines into the containers; - loading the containers onto the trucks; - transportation of the containers to the target location.
The re-assembly is the final part of the relocation project. Before the re-assembly stage of a plant or a production line, the construction works planning phase is conducted, together with a truck and container unloading plan. All shortcomings arising in any of the preceding phases will have a negative impact on the re-assembly phase, which is why it is crucial that, if possible, this stage be carried out by the same company that conducted the disassembly, match marking and loading. An increasing number of companies offering relocation services provide comprehensive and complex services, including disassembly, match marking and re-assembly
