Industrial projects are often characterized by sustained, even uninterrupted activity throughout the year. Cap Ingelec therefore adapts to each situation, as was the case for its design-realization mission for the modernization of the cooling circuit of the Volvo-Renault Trucks engine test center in Saint Priest (69). There, the manufacturer tests the endurance and performance of its prototypes for its “heavy goods vehicles” and “military machines” activities, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
“We only had 3 weeks last summer to go from one installation to another in strict compliance with the client’s process”, analyses Marc Boyer, Engineering and Realization Director of Cap Ingelec. A real pressure to which the engineering company responded with a very well studied organization upstream. “We had carried out the preparation of the project in March, the installation of the site in April, and the preparatory work on site in May, June and July 2017. In addition, we had put in place conservatory means that would have allowed us to return to the previous situation without damage to Volvo-Renault Trucks’ business in the event of a failure.”
This security proved to be unnecessary, as the new system worked perfectly from the moment it was installed on D-Day. “Cap Ingelec is used to working on occupied sites. Our job is to bring serenity to industrialists in situations which can quickly become anxiety-provoking for them when they are badly managed” continues Marc Boyer.
