Arab Steel Plant
The ARAB STEEL CO. is a flagship company of the AL ITTEFAQ STEEL CO. and is already setting up a green-field and integrated steel plant with a capacity limit of up to 4.5 million tons. A new plant with a capacity up to 10 million tons is planned to be set up in four phases, and it will be the largest steel plant in KSA specialized to provide steel materials for Saudi and other Middle East areas. A power plant is designed to be built in the plant area. The first phase begun in 2012 and the designed capacity was 1.5 million tons.
1.Establish illumination standards, provide lighting budget.
The first phase project was divided into 21 major blocks and 46 small blocks. These blocks were contracted to different contractors in order to catch up project schedule. Different contractors might result in different illumination standards. OKTECH established illumination standards for the plant areas in accordance with international standards and Saudi local standards, and selected appropriate models based on the standards. A detailed lighting budget was also provided to the owner for approval.
2.Provide lighting solution and material list.
Design works of the large-scale project are always supervised by a consultant firm with strict standards. Illuminance calculation should be required when Illumination layout drawings are provided. Design institutes need more time to prepare design data as they are not familiar with illumination simulation software, thus design schedule may be delayed. OKTECH can provide illuminance calculation and material list to assist the design institute in working out design data.
3.Optimize lighting solution, save cost budget.
As for the illumination layout drawings which had been completed, OKTECH may offer illuminance simulation services based on the drawings by using our simulation plugins of lighting fixtures, and then propose an optimized lighting solution. By utilizing innovative solution from OKTECH, the owner is able to enjoy a savings of approximately 15 percent on quantity of lighting fixtures while still fulfilling the design requirements. Our 400-watt light fixtures used in the main plant were able to generate a light level similar to 1000-watt fixtures of other brand. OKTECH’s products were able to provide a uniform distribution and scalability to meet application requirements, using fewer fixtures to achieve the desired light levels.
4.Handle goods inspection, certificate of origin and SASO certificate of conformity, save lead time, control commercial cost.
5.Provide guide to installation, work for acceptance.
