TURNKEY AND INDUSTRIAL PLANT
Trapp managed the turkey construction of production facilities for salt in Yemen in a mere 15 months construction time. This plant was built directly on the Red Sea, purifying raw salt, treating it and adding iodine, packing and marketing it. Kitchen salt as well as salts for the oil industry have been produced there since 1991. By special request of the client the project was also operated by Trapp managers after the project had been completed.
In February 1982 Trapp completed a project for Thyssen Rheinstahl Technik of Duesseldorf to produce two identical thermostone plants (gas-formed concrete block works). These factories were constructed south of Baghdad in Najaf and Kerbala.
The two turnkey industrial plant projects comprised the following structures:
1. main work
- production facilities, containers and storage areas
- administration and staff buildings
- development and in-house technology
2. Ancillary work
- site installations, laboratory
- water purification plant and concrete mixing plant
- camp, leisure time facilities
Trapp provided all the infrastructure work beyond the turnkey structural activities and kept to the building time laid down in the contract exactly.
As a result of this excellent performance, Trapp was commissioned by the same client for the construction of the biggest brick factory in West Africa in Izom in Nigeria.
Trapp performed construction management for turnkey industrial plant construction in Algeria from 1990 to 1993 and in Saudi-Arabia from 1994 to 1996. Trapp undertook the planning, organisation and supervision of the extension to a cement factory in Meftah, Algeria, for a construction period of three years. The plant extension resulted in an increase in capacity from 700,000 to 1,000,000 tons per annum. A 50 metre high reinforced-concrete tower, a new crusher building as a steel skeleton structure as well as foundations for the steel construction of the piping route.
Extension of a cement factory was also commissioned in Saudi-Arabia under Trapp 's construction management. Five existing furnace lines with a daily capacity of 5,300 tons were supplemented by a sixth with a daily capacity of 3,500 tons on its own from 1994 to 1995.
Trapp performed the Turnkey construction management of a Camera Production Plant for AGFA Gevaert AG in Portugal from 1974 to 1976 and the Turnkey Construction an Assembly Plant for Mercedes Trucks in Enugu, Nigeria from 1978 to 1981.
Domestically Trapp have been involved in works for some of the major industrial conglomerates for over 100 years and are considered to be a very competent and reliable partner. In this vein Trapp needed only 13 calendar days (core construction time) for demolishing and reconstructing a major foundation for paper production machines (11.20 m x 38.90 m x 8.90 m) for Haindl in Duisburg - hardly anyone could do it any faster and Trapp were engaged because of the certainty required by the client as regards quality and completion time.
Trapp also execute associated works, control buildings and supply structures for Blast Furnaces and Furnace foundations and linings. An example being the integrated construction services provided during the 80s and 90s for the expansion of existing furnaces and new construction for Thyssen Stahl AG in Duisburg-Schwelgern.
Trapp have expertise in the construction of Coil coating plants, Galvanising plants, Ventilator installations for mining pits, Production halls and large scale Workshops (e.g. Mercedes paint shop in Duesseldorf).
Additionally all work and services connected with building construction and civil engineering have also been offered as turnkey projects for many years now and have included:
Factory buildings, Business premises, shopping centres and malls, storage facilities, hotels, institutional buildings, cold stores, laboratory buildings, warehouses, schools and kindergartens
