Vasse Felix – Bottling Line Upgrade
Decommission and disconnect existing bottling line. Install power, lighting and data for new line.
Outline of Scope of Works
With an ageing bottling line that required a lot of operators to unit the aim was to replace almost all of the of the line components with equipment that was more automated and time saving.
After the old equipment was decommisioned and removed safely, installation of cable tray, pre cabling to future equipment positions and upgrades to lighting all had to be achieved before an application of a new non slip floor sealant.
Once the new equipment was in place, stainless steel service tubes were installed for power, data, air and water requirements to equipment. After connection, testing and pre-commissioning had been completed overseas technicians assisted for the final commissioning phase and testing.
Project Obstacles to Overcome
Extensive amount of planning, thought and scheduling to meet the time deadline requirements of the client. Bottling commitments, overseas technicians and the coordination of various trades all had to be taken into account, This was achieved by prioritising scope whilst remaining flexible through the project progression.
As the new bottling line would require less operators the client requested options for emergency shut downtime entire line to limit safety risks. The solution proposed and then installed was a seperate switchboard for only the bottling line equipment supplied by a 45Kw connector controlled by 5 emergency stop buttons around the bottling line.
