Project Scope:

Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance (GEMA) is a joint venture comprised of DaimlerChrysler, Hyundai, and Mitsubishi Motors. Their goal is to manufacture a new family of cost-efficient, in-line, four-cylinder engines that will meet and beat the best engines in the world. Their partnership leverages the extensive resources of the three companies to create and use best-practice manufacturing processes, advanced automation, and leading-edge technology. IPS was responsible for five key areas of the project. They installed Building Utility Piping, Process Equipment Packages and worked on the Energy Center, Material Storage Building, Waste Treatment Building and Tank Farm.

IPS installed potable and non-potable water, chilled water, compressed air, lube oil, hydraulic oil, transmission fluid, turbo oil, washer fluid, natural gas, coolant, industrial waste and storm/sanitary piping. At the Material Storage Building, IPS self-performed all plumbing, HVAC, process piping, ductwork, power and process controls work and set four TMI custom air handling units.

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.
