Project Scope:

IPS was selected to be the mechanical contractor for the Ford Lima engine plant V-6 Upgrade Project that was completed in spring 2016. The mechanical package consisted of HVAC and installation of process piping including cooling water, compressed air, natural gas and motor oil systems. As part of the HVAC scope, IPS was responsible for demolition of existing roof top air handling units (AHU) and setting and installing of three TMI roof top AHUs.

Challenges:

The new TMI rooftop AHU were set during a weekend plant shut down. Due to the size of the units and set back on the roof, the units were set by a helicopter lift. This required extensive planning between IPS, the lifting company (Erickson), and the operational and safety people at the plant.

Project Scope:

Autoneum is a globally-leading supplier of acoustic and thermal management materials for automobiles.  The firm develops and produces multifunctional and lightweight components and systems for noise and heat protection necessary for vehicle comfort.  In September 2011, Autoneum began new construction of a 106,500 SF manufacturing facility in Oregon, Ohio.

IPS was contracted to install the presses at the new facility, and to complete the infrastructure associated with the mechanical and electrical systems required for operation of the presses.  Equipment installed by IPS includes:  compressors, dryers, boilers, chillers, economizers, chemical treatment systems, controls, and power wiring.  IPS also installed steam condensate, compressed air, and chilled water piping; and potable, non-potable, and dye-release systems.

Challenges:

Through outstanding team work and time management, IPS was able to have all the process systems operational and functional within a six-week period in order for Autoneum to begin cycling presses for production.  Since completion of this new facility in Oregon, Ohio, Autoneum has now become the only plant in North America that develops and produces the one-of-a-kind lightweight component for vehicles.
