P10458: Dresser Rand Wellsville -- Layout Design


Project Summary Project Information

"For more than 100 years, Dresser-Rand has been among the largest global suppliers of rotating equipment solutions, with field-proven centrifugal and reciprocating compressors, steam turbines, expanders, gas turbine packages, and control systems."

"Dresser-Rand is positioned to deliver a complete package of solutions, from initial concept to equipment retirement for the worldwide oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, and process industries."

For decades, the importance of process improvement and innovation has been disregarded at Dresser-Rand facility in Wellsville, NY. As the customer, Dresser-Rand would like to see an improvement to the current inventory storage area within the Wellsville facility. Because Dresser-Rand has such large amounts of capital in inventory, a new, efficient storage and layout proposal for the new area will have a direct impact on total cost. The team will be asked to explore any and all feasible options with the current layout of the inventory area to better the flow of product and improve tracking and storage of material.
