Tudawe Engineering ensures IIFA Awards held in ideal air conditioning comfort

Tudawe Engineering Services, a subsidiary of Tudawe Brothers (Pvt) Ltd, made its mark once again as an efficient company by completing the supply and installation of the 600 tonne Air Conditioning System at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium, that was used for IFFA Awards Ceremony.

Commenting on the project, the company said; “We had just 30 days to complete this comprehensive project based on basic drawings provided by the consultants to the project, State Engineering Corporation (SEC) and its specialist Engineer Chandana Dalugoda. Upon the successful bid for the tender we were awarded the contract which was 35% lower than the closest contender.” The company said it completed the detailed drawings within 24 hours and established LC’s for Chillers, Pumps, Air Handling Units and Cooling towers with key suppliers on the same day. “Normally these things are done after other formalities such as advance payments etc., but we realized we didn’t have the luxury of time so we decided to go ahead in good faith.

To make matters worse even the weather worked against us, almost 10 days during this period rain affected the work. We believe in our team and their capabilities so nothing prevented us from going ahead and achieving another success,” it said.

Chillers were sourced from Hitachi and York in Singapore; the Air Handling Units from Ethos in India was supplied in two weeks and assembled on site; the Euroflow pumps were manufactured and air freighted to Colombo from Singapore in seven days, whilst the Hitachi Chiller and BSE Cooling Tower reached Colombo in 10 days by sea freight.

The logistics of getting the 60 foot long York chiller, the largest air cool chiller to be installed in Sri Lanka was a big challenge, the company said. Freight for this turned out to be 10 times more than the standard costs of a 40 foot container as the carriers cashed in on the urgency. “Of course we had to use all the support of the diplomatic channels as well as the local authorities to ensure things moved without any delay. We had similar challenges in almost every area but with meticulous planning and careful execution we were able to overcome every hurdle that came our way,” it said.

The entire system was successfully commissioned last week with the assistance of foreign engineers and local engineers on time. This achievement was very much appreciated by the Indian IIFA crew who worked along with Tudawe’s inside the stadium, the company said.
