Osem has opened its new Bamba (peanut butter puffs) plant in Kiryat Gat. Meptagon Group was actively involved in installing the Osem production lines in the new plant. In a fruitful collaboration between the two companies, the mechanical & pipe work and instruments & control departments in our Contracting Division have been providing ongoing support for this project for the past 14 months. Dozens of our employees worked on installing the production lines and infrastructure completing a complex project on a tight schedule. By integrating our teams early in the implementation we were able to contribute Meptagon experience and knowledge-based solutions right from the start. Production line capacity is one million bags of Bamba a day, and this is expected to expand to a million and half a day by the end of this year. Look out for the new visitor’s center expected to open later this year, where you will be able to take a peek at the production lines we installed.

13/Feb/2019

At the national welding conference recently held in Ramat Gan, we heralded the BIM approach to design. Eyal Leshem, head of the design and engineering division at Meptagon, gave an overview of a technology that interactively integrates virtual elements in the actual environment in real-time. The system was demonstrated by Shlomi Kohavi, head of the design department.

By integrating 3D, laser scanning, and augmented reality tools in our design toolbox, we are able to create a complete picture of a project before we have started work.We use augmented reality to achieve greater precision and better simulations, and check for conflicts with objects on the ground, operations, and accessibility. We use these tools to embed the model in its intended environment, and this allows us to identify errors before anything is put on the ground, and prepare a correct and accurate project design. Augmented reality is best implemented with skids, and small to medium sized facilities. Want to see how this technology would work for you? Write to: eyall@meptagon.com

We are proud to participate in strategic projects. In this case, the contracting division at Meptagon Group upgraded the Eilat desalination plant for Shaham-Mekorot. In this project we installed SMO pipe work with new 4” and 6” manifolds which were manufactured by T-drill. The T-drill collaring machine makes it possible to conduct non-destructive tests and produces a high quality product using a specialized technology. Work on this project included dismantling, manufacturing, and installing pipe work and constructions according to the new plan for the facility. We also were required to adjust the plan to conditions on the ground on the fly so we could meet a tight schedule. Of the 5 months that this project took, we spent a total of 3 weeks in the field as most of the design and manufacturing were conducted ahead of time in the workshop. This salination plant was the first one established in Israel and it provides the entire water supply for the city of Eilat. Thank you for the privilege of being part of this important project.

Our contracting division recently upgraded a steam generator system for a pharmaceuticals customer. The upgrade of the entire steam plant at the energy center included dismantling the supporting pipework and the old collection tank, installing a new tank and the piping for steam, condensation, water, gas, and air, and, naturally, new support and insulation work. We used sophisticated techniques to keep the steam works’ downtime to a minimum, and it was shut down for just one week. We later connected up the piping while the facility was back at work again keeping downtown to a minimum. Yup, we can also do that.

This time, on a personal note, a word of thanks to the employees and managers of the Meptagon group in a complex lifting project for Tara: Last week, we completed a challenging lifting project of 8-ton tanks, in parallel to our ongoing work on the site. Due to the weight and size of the tanks, they could not be placed in the production hall without preparing massive support by beams. With meticulous planning and meticulous thought, the support beams were placed on the roof of the factory. Through drillings in the roof ceiling, steel ropes were connected from the beams directly to the tanks on the floor below, using chain hoists. “For a long time now, I have been visiting the Tara project and now it is obvious that the work is done at a very high safety level”, said our safety supervisor, Arik Sabag. “All workers in all different departments take personal protective gear as a work method, working at height is generally in compliance with the safety procedures and if there are safety defects, they are treated immediately.” We would also like to commend the crane contractor, Manofei Yehuda, for carrying out worthy work in full cooperation with the project managers and under their management.

Well done to all partners!

60 seconds about Full BIM design done right:

Meticulous full BIM design with laser scanning technology streamlines planning and implementation and delivers:

  • High precision
  • Detailed plans
  • Supports planning
  • Work programs and isometric drawings
  • BOQs
  • Detailed reports

Using this method we successfully added a 15 m tank to an operational tank farm, and connected it to an existing PVDF large-diameter pipeline.
While still in the planning phase we were able to identify potential pitfalls and averted unnecessary setbacks during installation.
Thanks to effective and detailed planning, implementation kicked off well before the arrival of the tank.
