The factory manufactures motor vehicle bumpers. Their main clients are Volkswagen and Mercedes. REHAU, who operates a 24 hour, 7 day a week production line required an extension of their facility with absolute minimal impact on production or down time.
The R92m project to extend the REHAU factory comprised of new offices, kitchen, ablutions, utility room and three new production halls. The new halls are as follows: a paint line hall; injection moulding hall and a logistics hall. In these halls the production process of various bumpers are completed from basic materials to final shelf products.
As the lead electrical engineer on the project, it was my responsibility to investigate, design and to manage the electrical installation of all electrical requirements for the new extension of the facility; a new factory area of around 10 000 square meters.
