FERMA S.A. supplying new markets

Since the middle of July of this year, FERMA SA started with the engineering development for the HAIZEA-SICA company’s warehouses located in Argentina, being its first landing in South America.

This project consists of the construction of 5 warehouses entirely formed by metal structure surpassing 6,000 m2 and 300 tons of structure, which are divided into the following buildings: INTERNAL ASSEMBLY SHIP, TRANSFER SHIP, GRANALLADO SHIP, SHIP OF PAINTING and finally DEPOSIT SHIP. It is important to note that inside the ships have crane bridges of 40 meters of free light with a load capacity of up to 100 tons.

Below is a sample of the progress of the project in the different stages of construction, which is estimated to be available for use in the coming days, as agreed in the work schedule.

The purpose of these ships is to manufacture wind power generation towers of National and International supply.

Youth Games 2018

FERMA S.A. continues with the execution of the three contracts to realize the metallic structures and assembly with their corresponding enclosures for four pavilions Olympic, including the one that will have the pool. The intervention is carried out on the Julio A. Roca Sports Park in Buenos Aires.

The Buenosairean government, through the Ministry of Urban Development and Transport, will carry out the project of the Olympic Park, an interdisciplinary sports ground that will be used in the Olympic Games of the Youth 2018, after which it will be conserved for the use of the athletes Argentines.

All the projected installations were validated by the IOC, respecting the highest world standards in sports equipment. Likewise, the project contemplates rigorous criteria of sustainable construction.

Bridge on Line H

Techint Argentina hired our company to make a pedestrian bridge on Line H of the subway.

The project includes the expansion of the line and construction of six stations in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires.

Two new thermal power plants in operation

The National Energy and Mining Ministry reports that on Saturday, August 12, the CT Pérez and CT Cañada de Gómez thermal plants, both in the province of Santa Fe, began to generate electricity for the national interconnected system.

In the case of CT Perez, it has an installed capacity of 76 MW and is apt to consume natural gas, gas oil and fuel oil indistinctly. Its commissioning was advanced in relation to the date of the tender (August 29), carried out within the framework of SEE Resolution No. 21/2016.

The CT Cañada de Gómez has 64 MW and is suitable for consuming the three fuels mentioned above. It was also advanced in relation to the contractual date, being the same on October 29.

In this way, 10 power plants are already being generated within the framework of SEE Resolution No. 21/2016, with a total of 774 MW, equivalent to the generation capacity of the Atucha II nuclear power plant. The investment (estimated at US $ 696,600,000) has been made entirely by private capital and its repayment will be made through long-term supply contracts (up to 10 years).

According to the commitments assumed by the bidders of the tender, before December 31 of this year, 14 additional generation projects (US $ 1,630,800,000 of estimated investment) will be specified, adding another 1,812 MW to the system.

The total new generation capacity will enable the system to operate on critical summer days with greater reliability and safety, reducing cutting risks and making the operation of the service more economical.

Completion of J.F. Secco

FERMA S.A. Culminated the provision and assembly of all metal structures for the J.F. Secco in the three localities of Santa Fe (Perez, Cañada de Gómez and Villa Ocampo) simultaneously.

Here the advances of the mentioned works represented in the following videos of our client…

Work progress in the GRIDO machine room

Finishing the provision and assembly of the new “Machine Room” on the agreed dates, one of the strengths of FERMA.

As can be seen in the photo, the structure has a mixed surface treatment, Epoxy and Polyurethane in protected areas, while exposed areas exposed to the weather were hot dip galvanized.

On the other hand, this building has a total weight of 210 TT, a maximum height of 25 meters, mezzanines, footbridges and rafters with a bridge crane with a capacity of 20 TT. The same one is in the plant located in the Industrial Park Ferreyra, province of Córdoba.

Advance in the J.F. Secco

FERMA S.A. The provision and assembly of all metal structures for the J.F. Secco in three locations in Santa Fe (Perez, Cañada de Gómez and Villa Ocampo) simultaneously.

New CNC pantograph, plasma and oxyfuel

FERMA S.A. Put into operation a new CNC pantograph for high precision Plasma metal cutting and high definition oxyfuel with a net cutting capacity 3000 x 13000 mm. The width of cut is taking into account a slave head, that is to say that allows to cut a plate of 3,000 mm of width with a slave head installed.

It should be noted that this equipment will be added to one of similar characteristics to double production in the cutting area, this will be achieved thanks to the capacity of HYPERTHEM sources (260 and 400 A).

Accuracy, Robustness and Versatility are the main features of this large pantograph prepared for any cutting process. Its super reinforced construction ensures a high cutting quality lasting over time no matter how aggressive the working environment is or how high the demand for production is.

This equipment allows cutting with high definition plasma, high definition oxyfuel, perforated with wick or milling, milling, routing, engraving, plasma bevelling, triple bevelled with oxyfuel for bevels in K or X on both edges of the sheet simultaneously.

Powerful motorization and state-of-the-art CNC deliver high productivity in high definition plasma processes (with or without beveling), high definition oxyfuel (with or without beveling), drilling, milling and engraving.
