Engineering design work

TOYO's engineering center in Japan has specialized divisions to undertake design work related to process, static and rotating equipment, utility (water supply/power generation), piping, control and measurement systems, electrical, civil, architectural and fire prevention, each division responsible for the design of individual components of the industrial plant facilities. During the execution of each project, core technologies in all engineering design activities are essential, including chemical, mechanical, material, electrical, electronic, telecommunication, civil engineering, architecture, environment, safety, hygiene and information technology. It is the integration of the separate engineering activities performed by each division core technologies is usually more important than seeking a single core technology solution, to resolve complex issues which appear in many cases of real projects.

TOYO has sufficient specialist resources to provide solutions to such complicated issues and, most importantly, to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations of the country or region.

Engineering phases and global cooperation

Engineering and Design work is usually the first thing and the major activity for the realization of an industrial facility and it is often the case that engineering is conducted in a number of phases. Engineering and design may start with a Feasibility Study prior to materialization of the project, followed by Basic Design, Front End Engineering Design (FEED) and Detailed Design. These terms are not common to all countries or engineering contractors, a brief description of each phase follows.
In the Basic Design phase, the process design employed for the facility and the various basic concepts of the plant design are defined. In some cases, the Licensor (a technology owner) undertakes a major role in this phase. Engineers will study the material and heat balances, and define major equipment, control systems and instrumentation for all parts of the process. This determines the basic functions of the elements and provides defines the spatial requirements for the facility.
Following the basic process design, the FEED phase includes sizing of the major components and layout design. The basic design of major components and layout may be fed back to the process design to optimize functional requirements further refine the skeleton and layout of the facility. Basic design continues with mechanical equipment, control and electrical systems; quotations may be obtained from vendors for critical items during the FEED phase. Piping and civil engineers contribute to develop the overall layout and define the outline of the necessary buildings, structures, roads and other elements as required. During the Detailed Design phase, engineers will prepare a significant number of construction drawings including foundation, steel frame, construction drawings for electrical equipment, instrumentation and piping are prepared. These construction drawings are prepared incorporating detailed information obtained from suppliers for mechanical equipment, instruments, electrical and other equipment to be included in the facility.

The Toyo Group companies form the global operation where each group company is able to collaborate with each other or operate independently. In a single project, for example, the FEED may be performed by Toyo-Korea and the Detailed Design conducted by the local TOYO engineering firm. TOYO is a response to our customers' request to minimize engineering costs and maximize the use of local resources which offers our clients' the optimum solution to realize their projects.
