Mott MacDonald appointed EPCM consultant for PET bottles machinery manufacturing plant, India

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by ASB International Private Limited to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for an INR 550 million (US$12 million) PET bottles machinery and mold manufacturing plant expansion to be located at Ambernath in the Thane district of Maharashtra, India.

The 10,800 m2 extension to ASB International’s existing operational facility at Ambernath - which is one of the most modern and largest among single stage PET processing machine manufacturers in the world - will include a major machinery and quality assurance laboratory as well as utilities and office space.

Mott MacDonald will provide its world class industrial design expertise - ranging from utilities, architecture, civil and structural, mechanical and electrical, to instrumentation and fire protection systems - to the project. Mott MacDonald will also support the procurement and selection of all necessary equipment for building construction as well as provide construction supervision services during the project execution stages.

Mott MacDonald project director M C Jagtiani said, “We are delighted to have been appointed by ASB International to help them with their expansion to produce world class molds. This project will address India’s packaging industry’s growing demand for PET bottles. Customers increasingly seem to prefer PET bottles because, unlike PVC, they are fully recyclable.”

Jagtiani added, “We look forward to delivering what will be a challenging project designing a vibration free structure building to ensure that the mold manufactured with CNC machines is within five microns of accuracy, which is a benchmark set by the client for the mold production. For over 40 years we have been at the forefront of executing award-winning industry projects in India and we will draw upon our wealth of experience to deliver this one.”

The project is due for completion by mid 2012.
