Overall Project Master Plan

The overall project master plan comprises an exhaustive analysis of the entire set of feasibility studies; these usually cover the layout of the farm, including fields, camp and special infrastructure location, access roads as well as, the general irrigation network. According to the available studies; e.g. soil surveys, land occupation map or topography as well as, the project’s detailed strategies, FGM International optimizes the land use for the given production area. It is not a standard design, “one size fits all” project master plan but it considers in a custom way, all of your project’s unique parameters to optimize every square meter of cultivated soil according to its potential. Our master plan’s added value is the fact that it is developed focusing on the maximization of production through careful attention to the detail of every individual field, as well as, farm assets, project team skills, knowledge etc. Our team will […]

Equipment Requirements and Specifications

The equipment requirements and specifications consist in an independent advisory tool for the equipment list required for a specific crop. FGM International provides terms of reference ready to be submitted to any manufacturer to obtain a tailored quotation. FGM International’s approach is to maximize production utilising the minimum necessary equipment. The list of required equipment that FGM provides, avoids over-spending on costly and superfluous assets whilst enabling a scaled-up margin. The list focuses on the technical specifications and number of units required without promoting any specific manufacturer. Review of the crop requirements according to the project environment, Review of the equipment’s compatibility, complementarity and adjusment capability to achieve the desired performance, Listing and enumeration of the necessary equipment and indication of the ideal required technical specifications with metrics, power and special features for each piece of equipment.

Workshop Requirements and Design

The design of the workshop is an essential part of a successful project as it will enable good maintenance of the machinery to provide efficient operations, avoid breakdowns and facilitate quick repairs when required. The FGM practice prefers the workshop to be separated from any other service-facilities to promote efficient management. Its size should be well-defined and scalable to avoid excessive initial investment or maintenance shortage due to a lack of working space. In addition to the design, FGM International provides a tool and equipment’s list and related technical specs, to cover all the project’s requirements such as, mechanical maintenance, electrical work and pump, engine and irrigation upkeep. Internal organization of the workshop with optimal size, required materials and facilities, Workshop location requirements, List of tools & equipment.

Warehouse Requirements and Design

The design of the warehouse is indispensable to a successful project, as it ensures the efficient storage of essential parts, inputs and any other consumables. According to FGM International’s standards, the warehouse should be separate from any other service facilities in order to enable efficient operational management. Its size should be well defined and scalable to avoid excessive investment or lack of storage space as well as to facilitate the fast distribution and easy inventory of the goods. For production storage, please refer to our dedicated product production storage requirements and specifications. Warehouse requirement according to the project including size, recommended materials and required facilities. Internal organization of the warehouse.

Camp Layout Design

The camp layout will provide you with an optimized organization of your base camp to facilitate your production, operation and management. For remote sites, FGM International integrates the service infrastructure to accommodate the staff. The camp layout should optimize the machinery fleet’s traffic to reduce equipment downtime for maintenance and service purposes. Smart positioning of each facility will also facilitate staff contact to support reporting procedures and HR management. Drawing on its considerable experience of managing long-term agricultural projects, FGM International has sound practice in camp design, which is a key milestone in any project’s development and will provide a practical blueprint of the camp and its facilities. Base camp layout with position of buildings, roads, energy and sanitary facilities, Internal organization blueprint of key buildings (workshop, warehouse, office, storage facility, dormitory and restaurant), Circulation plan avoiding unecessary traffic, Specific recommendations.

Production Storage Requirements and Specifications

An inadequate agricultural storage solution or practices might crucially affect the final product’s quality or occasion extra costs impacting the overall profit. We can secure your investment relying on our recognized ability for managing production storage in various environments and for many types of productions. According to the project’s targets outputs, the storage requirement can involve silos, pads, bag silos, drying facilities as well as cold storage. With a rigorous analysis of the production, the targeted market and logistics, we will deliver tailored and independent specifications to ensure the safe storage of your products. Key topics Review of storage needs according to the production, climate and target market. Tailored storage requirements: type, size, special facilities. Technical specification review.

Irrigation Design Review

The irrigation design review product involves an overall review of an existing irrigation design to confirm its adequacy/conformity in terms of international technical standards, using as comparative references FGM’s previous similar experiences and projects. Our core team is expert in facilitating projects involving complex water conveyance systems and has the essential knowledge and significant practice in the field of irrigation management. This review ensures that the irrigation system design is balanced according to the actual water needs of your targeted production, taking into account the natural environment (climate and water resources) as well as the future operational organization of the specific project. Review of water requirements estimates according to the needs of the planned crops and climatic conditions. Appraisal of the design criteria parameters and technical assumptions. Overall assessment of required specifications for equipment and material such as pipelines’ layout, canal design, storage dams. Objective analysis of pumping stations, including […]
