Sugar Industry

 

Equipment Manufacturing

 

FORGES TARDIEU is a single source for complete manufacturing capability ranging from design to installation and even on-site maintenance and refurbishing. We offer our clients the key advantage of having our own design office and workshops within the same facility, allowing for greater flexibility and reactivity in manufacturing most of the equipment used in sugar making at our workshop. Depending on the size and complexity, the piece of equipment can be wholly produced and assembled in-house or prefabricated and shipped in kit form for field assembly.

 

Plant Erection

 

One of our key strengths is our valuable experience regarding fabricating and erecting industrial plants within the agreed time frame and according to client specifications. The FORGES TARDIEU plant erection team has a long track record of undertaking expansion projects as well as the total or partial dismantling and remounting of current infrastructures at various sugar manufacturing plants throughout Africa. Our experience covers all aspects of assembly, from manufacturing in our workshops to shipping on site for mounting and installation using local workforce. We also perform final testing and commissioning of equipment as well as training prior to operation.

 

Equipment Maintenance

 

The FORGES TARDIEU equipment maintenance specialists can help you to improve the reliability of your plant and equipment so as to prevent problems   from arising, reduce breakdowns and faults and ensure effective operation. Our team of highly-skilled technicians is dedicated to providing tailored maintenance services to suit your needs, whether on-site or in our workshops. In addition, we offer refurbishment and upgrading services for factory equipment, including mill rollers, steam turbines and shafts.

 

Dismounting & Remounting of plants

 

We at FORGES TARDIEU are experts in the removal and relocation of plant equipment, taking charge of the dismounting and remounting procedures from end to end. We provide a cost-effective approach coupled with the highest precision and care, which has proven effective in carrying out a number of similar projects for sugar factories across Africa.

 

Automation and Process Controls

 

FORGES TARDIEU delivers all the equipment, services and systems required in monitoring and controlling processes and automation that affect efficient manufacturing. Digital control of variable process parameters will allow better decision support, downtime analysis and drastically reduce human-related errors while achieving significant savings in operational costs and enhancing plant safety, thus improving the overall profitability of your production processes.

 

Oil & Gas Sector

 

Erection of Petroleum Storage Facilities

 

FORGES TARDIEU supplies, installs and commissions various types of containment structures for bulk storage of petroleum products such as vertical and horizontal storage tanks designed by our engineers as per the latest edition of CODRES or API standards, as well as underground and above-ground horizontal storage tanks. Our equipment is duly fitted with all key accessories, including level gauge and fire-fighting systems. Our experienced teams of supervisors, coded welders, boiler makers and riggers also carry out on-site assembly with the support of local workforce if need be.

 

Tank & Pipeline Heating Systems

 

FORGES TARDIEU provides a variety of highly-efficient tank and pipeline heating system options for heavy fuel oil and asphalt/bitumen terminals. Our services include the design, supply, commissioning and servicing of boilers, electric heaters or thermal isolation, as per clients’ requirements.

 

Oil & Gas Pipes & Pipelines

 

We are also specialised in the supply of underground and above-ground oil and gas pipelines and hydrant systems to petroleum terminals located at facilities such as airport and seaport sites. According to project specifications and standards, our teams at FORGES TARDIEU will prepare the pipes and fittings in our workshops or on site prior to installation, welding and connection. We make sure that any project that we undertake complies with international norms and standards as well as local regulations. Our on-site project manager also submits a ’Construction Manual’ with as-built drawings after commissioning.

 

Other Industries

 

Boiler Installation & Maintenance
