The Philippines is located in southeastern Asia. It is a monsoon tropical rainforest climate, high temperature and rainy, high humidity, many typhoons. As an export-oriented economy, it relies heavily on external markets.
The Owner needs professional companies with international EPC capabilities to provide them with API Pipe line turnkey engineering services.
After rigorous bidding, WRD defeated three other powerful contractors and was finally selected as an EPC contractor of the API 5L Pipe Mill Project in Clark, the Philippines with a mandated completion date.
WRD met the schedule required by working on the plant construction, Equipment design & manufacture and Installation & commissioning simultaneously. The primary scope was the fabrication and installation of two API pipe mill lines, which are consisted of forming section, sizing section and finishing section, testing machines and auxiliary facilities.
The construction conditions in the Philippines is rather difficult with hot weather and typhoons, the civil construction must be processed during dry seasons. In order to rush ahead in difficult environment and not affect the construction progress, our working team often worked late into the night to speed up the project.
This complex project was completed on time, with excellent quality and no recordable injuries, resulting in tremendous client satisfaction.
