These examples articulate a growing understanding of offsite construction’s benefits, and not just in one particular market or geography and/or complementary to specific building codes. The international adoption of offsite construction will not only continue to gain momentum, but also is already starting to be standard consideration for worldwide design and construction projects.
Much is being made about what will happen to the Chinese economy, which is set to grow in 2013 at the slowest pace in 23 years. The can making industry is watching with keen interest as the new Chinese administration faces slowing factory production and reduced investment. While some are cautious about the future in China and other portions of Asia, one of the leading systems integrators in the D&I (canmaking) industry believes the market will remain strong through 2014. Roeslein and Associates Inc. opened a fabrication and construction facility in Shanghai nearly three years ago to establish a local presence in a country it believes will eventually become the largest consumer market in the world. Per capita consumption in China is currently only about 17 cans per year, far below the 360 cans each person consumes in the United States annually. But Roeslein and Associates believes China’s 1.3 billion people and growing middle class point to increased consumption.
Although Roeslein & Associates, Inc. is a household name in the canmaking industry, it is less known within the markets to which it is new: pharmaceutical, oil and gas, refinery, power, chemical and petrochemical. Roeslein is earning a reputation for reduced start-up times and improved efficiencies using its signature approach, Modularization, Unitization and Preassembly. One example of this type of success is Roeslein’s development of an automated sump pump system for an East Coast nuclear facility in 2012.
For more than two decades, the experienced team of professionals at Roeslein & Associates has earned a global reputation for exceptional, on-time service and unparalleled quality among aluminum beverage container manufacturers. Roeslein’s Modularized, Unitized, and Preassembled systems are the standard within the canmaking industry. More recently, Roeslein has put that expertise and reputation to work in other industries including oil and gas, refinery, petrochemical, power, chemical and pharmaceutical.
Ultra violet bottom coating (UVBC) is becoming increasingly popular in today’s modern D&I canmaking processes as its benefits for plant efficiency and productivity become more widely known. Always motivated by innovation and improvement, Roeslein & Associates designs and fabricates a UVBC system component which provides all of these benefits in an integrated module that also improves plant safety.
In its continued effort to diversify and apply its proven engineering, fabrication and integration methodologies to new markets, Roeslein & Associates has begun building a solid presence in the oil and natural gas markets with the production and installation of both produced water offload and secondary water flood recovery skids. With a proven comprehensive engineering approach, Roeslein implements fit-for-purpose designs for clients who require a high degree of management and reporting in their water recovery management. In close collaboration with experienced E&P Producer / Operators, Roeslein draws on its years of experience in engineering, fabrication, and integrating modular solutions for capital equipment projects to consolidate adaptability, convenience and dependability into a value-based solution.
The process modules and unitized systems Roeslein fabricate and test in its controlled environment at its fabrication facilities can be produced from conception to installation in a much safer manner than can traditional on-site construction methods. In addition to adhering to stringent safety standards as it fabricates and deploys its systems, Roeslein also provides a superior, built-in approach to safety for its equipment during normal plant operation.
In Roeslein’s approach, process modules and/or unit sections which are either affixed to floor mounted steel skids, or integrated into free standing steel structures (unit sections) are fabricated at one of its fabrication facilities located in the U.S. or China. The preassembly and testing processes largely take place at its fabrication facility; this increases on-site unpacking efficiency, decreases the on-site re-assembly and installation time and reduces plant checkout time, improving the start-up curve.
During all phases of a project, the cost of deploying labor is one of the most significant areas impacted by Roeslein’s approach to delivering high-quality, specialized plant facility solutions to its clients. That’s because Modularization, Unitization and Preassembly is an approach that focuses on efficiency.
As experts in Modularization, Unitization, and Preassembly, Roeslein’s skilled consultants, engineers, and fabricators pride themselves on delivering only the highest quality in specialized plant facility solutions. The same unique methodology that they employ at its fabrication facilities, which has been proven to reduce project costs and timelines, also ensures excellent quality and performance standards in the final product.
