Technical engineering and installation company Van Rennes was responsible for all
the electrical and mechanical installations for the new factory, office and tank farm.
They also made the full design and engineering for these challenging and exciting
installations. Their partner Van Rennes Industrial Automation took care of the automation
Interview with Jaco Bervoets, Manager Projects at Van Rennes.
How exceptional was this project?
We were very pleased with the confidence of Chugoku to build
their new factory with us. Chugoku has been a valuable partner
for many years and our close cooperation went next level with
this unique project. It was exceptional because it consisted of
very advanced installations for the factory which have never
been done before in the world.
Since we were involved directly from the start and listened
carefully to the wishes and demands we could advise and build
these installations completely in line with the expectations of
Chugoku. The design is developed in a Building Information
Modeling (BIM) process. All installations and machines are
processed in a transparent 3D model which matched every
component to each other during the preparation phase.
What about the environment?
We implemented a thermal storage system where heat and
cold are stored in the soil. All seven air handling units already
meet the requirements of the EU Ecodesign Directive 2018 with
energy label A. We applied LED lightning and installed 1.191
solar panels with a total capacity of 315.615Wp. Therefore the
office will be carbon neutral. Finally the production process is
cooled with free-cooling from the outside air and the heat is
recovered from a compressed air system.
