Engineering a Tech-city of the Future
An international finance tech-city for a rapidly developing state in India is intended to be India's foremost destination for financial services and other multi-services sector. The State Government established a joint venture company for the development of the tech city. This ambitious project of the Sate Government is designed to stand proud on the banks of the river Sabarmati, built to be a colossal township spread over 25,000 acres with office buildings on 880 acres. Tata Consulting Engineers Limited has been appointed as engineering consultants and is presently handling the city planning and detailed engineering. The magnitude of the project and the planning required showcases, Tata Consulting Engineers' capabilities as a high-end engineering solutions provider. The project run-time is expected to extend to about 11 years.
Scope of TCE's involvement entails total infrastructure master plan covering -
Water Supply Distribution - Raw Water pumping Station and Pipeline , Water Treatment & Master Planning of Water Supply Distribution Network for 673 Acres.
Wastewater Collection & Treatment
Master planning for Storm Water Drainage Management
External Fire Safety Systems
Solid Waste Management
Largest District Cooling Systems
Transportation - External Connectivity, Improvement of existing access roads, Connectivity to national highway, Arterial, sub-arterial and internal roads , Vehicular & pedestrian underpasses, Flyovers , Metro Line with Stations.
Tata Consulting Engineers' engineering expertise entailed innovative solutions that provided cost-effective options, environmentally sustainable waste management & water management solutions, resource conservation measures and ensuring that the city is built on a 'green' concept. This project is not only the pride of the state which is in the limelight for its growth but also a proud accomplishment for Tata Consulting Engineer's Infrastructure Business as this is a platform that showcases the company's capabilities.
The Gujarat International Financial Tech City
The Gujarat International Financial Tech City is a master plan marvel of a smart city. TCE is associated with this prestigious project which is deemed among the world's most innovative projects in KPMG's list. The largest district cooling systems proposed for this project is a first of its kind in the country. Several innovative approaches have been incorporated in the design such as underground tunneling systems, etc. and TCE continues to add value to this smart city as engineering consultants.
The Vikram Udyogpuri Ujjain corridor
The Vikram Udyogpuri Ujjain corridor involved, DMIC, the developer and the Madhya Pradesh Govt. TCE used advanced technology systems such as GIS substations, Geo Informatic Systems, digital terrain modeling, 3D modeling, integrated utility planning, smart city ICT systems, etc.
TCE managed the complex EPCM aspect
TCE managed the complex EPCM aspect. Pre-bid challenges had to be ironed out at grassroots level administrative bodies extending to government offices. Working with multiple entities with specialized skills in order to transfer concept to reality is a challenge that TCE has managed well in the past. TCE has worked successfully with the Madhya Pradesh Govt, DMIC and funding agencies such as Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) to ensure smooth alignment of documentation as per international requirements and approvals with the local government
The Durgapur Aerotropolis
The Durgapur Aerotropolis, comprised 1,700 acres planned adjacent to the airport and flanked by two major rivers. This posed a challenge in design and project management of integrated infrastructure for the township covering water, sewerage, drainage, solid waste management, fire, disaster management, electrical distribution, telecommunication, safety and security aspects. The solution proposed included rainwater harvesting and water management designed to retain 22 ponds covering over 11 hectares of area. These ponds are being preserved and over 300 ml of rainwater will be harvested in these ponds. The drainage system has been planned to route the surface water run-off through these ponds.
The Rajasthan Urban Infrastructure Development project
The Rajasthan Urban Infrastructure Development project stood out for its design and master plan of the cities concerned which won TCE the CNBC award for best engineering design. Problems and challenges in Indian cities are unique to each locale. Hence Brownfield smart city projects in India require solutions from the Indian perspective. The problem of unaccounted water in the Water management and distribution vertical, including leakages, pipe bursts and water pilferage, lead TCE to think of a solution that could be implemented by optimising space to replace the old pipelines and re-use some. Tanker technology, a unique solution employed successfully in Hyderabad, Chennai and Kathmandu, saw the company isolate the affected area from the supply network to inhibit the flow of the water. Later, a tanker of water was pumped into the distribution supply to create pressure in the system to detect the leakage.
"Dynamics in the field of coastal hydraulics, estuarine hydraulics, river hydraulics and coastal morphology can be forecast using modeling techniques. Such modeling tools help in smart decision making in large infrastructure projects. The cost effectiveness that such forecasts bring can be significant."
Dr. Balakrishna Sharma
Understanding coastal hydrodynamics plays a major role in planning port and harbor layouts. Today, the dynamics in the field of coastal hydraulics, estuarine hydraulics, river hydraulics and coastal morphology can be forecast using modeling techniques.
A smart city exists for the common man, communities and businesses. Cities are smart when there is sustainable use of resources and economic growth. Smart cities are built with the premise that we have one planet and we need a master plan backed by intelligent engineering solutions to serve a growing urban populace. The smart city is a complex hierarchy of infrastructure, technology and service which require complex engineering, visionary planning and confluence of various entities with diverse capabilities
