Barmag Plant Design.


This POY/FDY plant in Egypt was Barmag’s first plant design project. Despite a moderate complexity Barmag faced several challenges. Logistics was one of them: the Egyptian architect and some 50 other subcontracting companies had to be coordinated. The interaction of all components and parts was first tested when commissioning the plant – it turned out finally that the close co-operation between client, Barmag’s staff, Barmag’s Egyptian representative and all major subcontractors was a great success.

for chip handling, the complete spinning plant including auxiliary, power and support systems as well as a superordinate power supply system. Being a grassroots plant, there were no restrictions concerning the building. Gayedtex decided in favour of a vertical plant layout rather than a more horizontal approach. The machine layout for the first phase comprised: - 3 machines each with 4 positions POY / FDY - every machine with individual color metering system - standard and microfiber 0,5 - 0,8 dpf, 150den In a second phase, the number of spinning lines will be quadrupled to 48 spinning positions. The building and plant layout was planned accordingly. Important Mile Stones The contract was signed in March 2001 as Barmag’s first complete plant design project - Gayedtex was only responsible for erection of the building according to Barmag’s layout. The building including the spinning equipment as well as the auxiliary and utility plants was erected during 2002. The site was finished early 2003 and start-up was scheduled then for September. The plant went into production soon after, so the first products could already be sold in October 2003.
