Godrej Agrovet Ltd. Greenfield Project, Andhra Pradesh by Everest

Project Brief
India imports a significant quantity of palm oil to meet the growing demand for edible oil. Godrej Agrovet Ltd is among the largest oil palm producers in India and works directly with the farmers for the entire lifecycle of their crops. Over the years, they have developed more than thousands of hectares of plantations across many states in India. To cater to the growing demand for edible oil, a Greenfield project was planned near a palm oil field in Chintalapudi Mandal, Andhra Pradesh by Godrej Agrovet Ltd.

Scope
Everest, India’s leading integrated pre-engineered steel building company was chosen after a stringent process of shortlisting by Godrej Agrovet Ltd. to execute its complex Greenfield project for producing palm oil. The scope of work for Everest included design and engineering, supply and erection of seven buildings.

Challenges
The situation on site was very challenging since all the machinery required for the process of making palm oil was already installed. There was no direct access to the location where the installation had to be done. On the front end of the site, an ash handling building with a very high chimney was already installed and on the rear end of the structure, turbine foundation work was done with a building already constructed.

Innovation
To ensure the timely completion of the project, Everest came up with a solution of completing the installation of the building from outside using two 180 MT cranes to complete the erection work. The material was lifted to a height of 40 meters to complete the boiler house building.

To ensure the safety of workers during the erection, a safety briefing was carried out for workers and training was given for working at height. It was made mandatory for all workers to wear PPE equipment and to do the erection work only when they were properly attached to the safety harnesses.

Outcome
Everest successfully delivered the complex 34.8 meters high G+6 multi-storey process plant for Godrej Agrovet under difficult site conditions while fully complying with all safety standards.
