Digital tools enhance the comprehensive design of a major processing facility

Viterra, an agricultural network focusing on grains, oilseeds, pulses, and cotton, was looking to increase their production capabilities. Our job? We contributed over 25,000 work hours of multi-disciplinary services on the implementation of a $185 million processing facility which can “swing” between processing canola or soybeans.

As lead engineer, we completed in-house design services including all process design as well as the detailed design for the industrial wastewater treatment system. Process and engineering services included mechanical design, electrical design, process/process piping design, and process controls design. The team also assisted with air and wastewater permitting, detail design general arrangements for equipment layout, and material handling and transfer systems, general arrangements, final design, and more.

Utilizing 3D Cadworx as the primary engineering design tool, we produced hundreds of design documents and drawings, and we also led the preparation of site layout and design, including assessment and implementation of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements for design.

Now complete, this new crushing and refining facility is the largest oilseed processing plant in Eastern Canada, the only major crushing and refining facility of its type in Quebec, and will process over a million metric tons of canola and soybean oil per year.
