PROCESS PLANTS


A successful process plant requires all engineering functions - process, civil, mechanical, electrical, piping and instrumentation – to work together to extract the maximum efficiency from the plant. This is where IEC plays a major role.
Our experienced engineers and associates can help to create a seamless set-up, either as your process plant is being planned, or once it is in operation, to make sure it is working as efficiently as possible. We approach these projects using the process below:

  • Block Diagram
  • Process Flow Diagram
  • P & ID
  • Utility Identification
  • Layout of Equipments
  • Procurement
  • Identfy Contractors
  • Erection
  • Commissioning

IEC plays a vital role in setting up process plants within a range of industries:

Food and Beverage

Covering all aspects of food manufacturing is challenging, particularly with the range of food safety and health and safety regulations you must comply with. IEC is experienced in setting up plants from scratch, with an in-depth knowledge of the supply chain - from sourcing raw materials to despatching finished products. IEC helps the businesses to identify a suitable location, source the right equipment, planning the plant, building and commissioning as per the cGMP and HACCP norms. IEC’s expertise in setting up plants according to the USFDA and European standards is a clear advantage for new businesses who want to set up export-oriented plants in this sector.
Our major areas of expertise are
  • Wheat flour and related products.
  • Rice powder and related products.
  • Spice and masala powder
  • Mineral water plant
  • Pickle industry
  • Frozen food
  • Fruit juices and syrups

Clean Rooms and Pharmaceutical Plants

The main three critical aspects in setting up a pharmaceutical plant are that it must be easy to clean, maintain and operate. Avoiding cross-contamination is the major focus when designing and setting up clean rooms within this type of plant. The processing environment needs to be carefully and precisely controlled, requiring the careful design of advanced HVAC systems to control temperature, humidity and air changes.

IEC has proven experience in setting up clean rooms within pharmaceutical plants. We understand the ideal man and material movement for the avoidance of cross-contamination and mix up, and we have more than 15 years’ experience in selecting pharma equipment, designing plant layout and commissioning clean rooms.

Our major areas of work include:
  • Generic medicine
  • Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API)
  • Pharma R&D
  • Operating theatres


IEC is proficient regarding all equipment, utility systems and operations relatedto pharmaceuticals, GLP laboratories & manufacturing and its implementation. Our holistic approach to equipment and system includes the design, automation, qualification, validation, operation, cleaning & contamination issues, preventive maintenance and continuous compliance. Following is a representative list of areas that IEC has hands-on experience…

  • Weigh & Dispense
  • Formulation
  • Aseptic techniques
  • Sterilization
  • Sterile filtrations
  • Aseptic filling
  • Advanced Aseptic Processing
  • Lyophilisation
  • Labelling, Packaging.
  • CIP/SIP
  • Isolation and RABS Technology
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Product and Material Transfers
  • Risk assessments

Chemical plants

IEC has developed a unique approach to setting up chemical process plants. We know that product quality, manpower utilisation, mechanisation and automation bring out maximum efficiency and productivity from the plant. Ensuring that all these key factors work together leads to a better manufacturing process. We use specialists in chemical pipework, mechanical erection, electrical installations, equipment procurement, building structure design and final preparations prior to commissioning.

Our major areas of expertise are:
  • Organic
  • » Acids, alkalis and allied chemicals
  • Inorganic
  • » Natural, synthetic and antibiotic drugs
  • Hydrogenated oils and soaps
  • » Soaps, detergents and cosmetics
  • Petrochemical products
  • » Process plants, plastic moulding and recycling
  • Pesticides and fertiliser manufacturing

Equipment Manufacturing

Equipment and spare parts manufacturing requires state-of-the-art technology alongside a clear understanding of how a good manufacturing layout can aid productivity. IEC has wide experience of engineering practices and the management challenges related to production. We create a close working partnership with customers to understand their needs across various disciplines, including work-study, ergonomics, operation research, manufacturing management, material management and production management to give us all the detailed information we need in order to produce final floor plans and to manage a complete project successfully.
