World’s Largest Gas to Gasoline Plant
The G2L plant is another USI project where the Q/A laboratories were sourced and commissioned by USI.
The Gas to Gasoline Plant (GTG) Plant developed by Rönesans in Ahal, a region in fifty kilometres distance to the Turkmen capital Ashgabat, will be the largest of its kind in the world.
The project has USD 1.5 billion investment value, under construction by Japanese Kawasaki Heavy Industries since 2014, expected to be commissioned in 2018.
The plant will have a daily gasoline production capacity of 1800 tons, followed by an annual average of 600.000 tons of gasoline and 100.000 tons of LNG (liquefied natural gas).
HOSPITAL AND MEDICAL FACULTY
Located on the Turkmenbashi Shayoly (Avenue), The medical faculty consists of two separate education blocks, one for physiology and the other for biology, as well as additional service buildings. USI has successfully provided a turnkey supply of all the medical and educational equipment, commissioning, training, installations. The medical faculty has been inaugurated by President of Turkmenistan.
The first step towards understanding the full implications of a project is to have a project kick-off meeting (PKM). In this meeting the following would be discussed: project location, budget, timelines and type of solutions required, type of project, health, energy, education, agriculture, industrial scope of work, logistic planning and training, sustainability and maintenance.

Project viability is confirmed by conceptual studies
Putting first things first
Naturally, you want your hospital project or healthcare programme to achieve the best possible results. This is partly a question of good planning. But it’s also a question of basing your plans on the correct assumptions. This is where USI INTERNATIONAL INC expertise can be invaluable. consulting with you closely at all times, we can help you perform crucial studies at five interlinked levels:
Functional & Space Programmes:
Putting the right things in the right place
In the functional programme, you establish the nature and scope of the units you require – for example, cardiology units or maternity facilities. This is another area in which our specialised advice can prove to be invaluable. We can determine the operational definitions not only of individual units but also of the overall coherence of the units as a whole. This will generate vital criteria for architectural and engineering design work.
The next step is to formulate your space programme. Here, we outline all the areas to which an operational function has been assigned. We use workload projections and capacity calculations to determine how much space is required for each activity. This provides the architect and equipment planner with vital design information.
Healthcare Systems Planning:
Putting populations into the picture
To ensure that your new healthcare programme will be as effective as possible, USI INTERNATIONAL INC can evaluate the healthcare needs of the population you wish to serve, taking full account of all relevant healthcare problems.
Thanks to our research and development expertise, we can help you set your planning objectives by analysing these needs at whichever level you require, whether nationally or regionally. This will enable you to establish your overall, macro-level healthcare priorities, and define the means by which they can best be met.
Architectural & Engineering Design Brief:
Establishing the technical guidelines
By definition, your healthcare programme aims to provide patients and medical staff with appropriate facilities. Without clear guidelines, however, your architects and engineers won’t be able to provide them. This is another area in which USI INTERNATIONAL INC expertise can be essential. We can assist you in drawing up the guidelines on which all systems and facilities will be based.
Proper guidelines can also do much to determine the eventual investment budget.
Matching your ambitions to your means
Once you have established your specific healthcare system needs (see Healthcare Systems Planning), USI INTERNATIONAL INC can help you conduct detailed feasibility studies. With regard to patients and doctors, for example, or time from capital investment to break-even or profit. Or with regard to options for funding.
Each of our feasibility studies specifies the conditions that must be met if your project is to be successful. it provides clear, detailed guidelines for implementation.
Weighing the budget
It goes without saying that budgets are essential to healthcare programmes. USI INTERNATIONAL INC can provide various services in this respect. First, we can calculate the investment budget your project will need – for construction, equipment and project management, for example.
Next, we can establish your operational budget, summarising in a cash flow projection the revenues your project will generate and the expenses it will incur. Finally, we can also advise you on project finance and on the credit opportunities provided by national and international institutions.

Healthcare Facility Design
Briefing for the best blueprints
Before your project can get off to a proper start, you will need to address a broad range of design issues. Here, too, USI INTERNATIONAL INC expertise is at your service.
if you don’t have the facilities in-house, our team of consultants will be happy to guide you through the different planning and design steps – no matter where no matter how complex.
As always with USI INTERNATIONAL INC., our services, advice and briefings are available item-by-item, or as a comprehensive package – whatever your specific needs dictate. Please feel free to consult us on any of the following services:
Medical Equipment Planning
Other people’s lives will depend on it
The selection of medical equipment has an impact on the design at four different levels: architectural, constructional, mechanical and electrical. this is why we give it specialist consideration in the earliest phases of a project.
We carry out detailed equipment scheduling on the basis of the medical functionality you require. This process generates a number of reports and drawings, including a room-to-room equipment schedule, a bill of quantities, an itemised budget table, a cross-reference list, a generic specification document, and architectural plan views with equipment symbols.
Sketching it out
In this design phase we translate the terms of the architectural and engineering brief into drawings that detail the physical layout of the relevant healthcare facility. This process is based on the functional and space programme, and covers the full range of design criteria – from patient and staff comfort, through medical equipment, to cleaning and maintenance.
Human Resource Planning
People for the long term
USI INTERNATIONAL INC examines every aspect of hr planning that will be relevant to your new healthcare facility. Starting at projected patient throughput, we consider financial resources and strategic development – never forgetting the less tangible aspects, such as management philosophy.
We deploy a range of techniques to assess labour supply, set up internal organisation structures, draw up staffing tables, compile skill & management inventories, and create replacement charts.
Neither do we overlook the external influences on your activities – demographic trends, government policy, labour mobility and educational levels in the national workforce. All in all, we can help you ensure that your strategic human resources plan is based on a proper assessment of supply and demand.
Constructional, Mechanical & Electrical Design
Your success is built on it
During the preliminary design process we devote full attention to specific constructional requirements, such as the optimal construction grid, floor strength, corridors and door openings, elevators, and lead screening.
The mechanical design incorporates all essential services such as water supply, drainage, ventilation, air-treatment and conditioning, and fire-fighting systems. The electrical design includes high and low voltage systems, emergency power supplies, lighting, telephone and paging systems. We offer a wide choice of services with regard to all these systems, ranging all the way from the design phase to operator training after installation has been completed.
Design Co-Ordination & Tender Evaluation
Making everything mesh
co-ordination is vital in any complex project – and yours is unlikely to be an exception! We can provide the assistance you need when coordinating your plans for architectural, building, mechanical and electrical work, and for properly integrating such work with your plans for medical equipment and other hospital technologies.
MRI. Sophisticated solutions including installation, commissioning and training are part of the USI holistic approach.
Implementation is dependent upon finance & project supervision
Finding the funding … and minding over it
Without the proper finance, your project can never get off the ground. and without project supervision, it’s unlikely to finish well – or on time. With our solutions for finance & financial control, USI INTERNATIONAL INC can help you with both.
Getting project finance is often a tedious business. Let us take the weight off your shoulders by advising you on the best range of options, or on the credit available through national or international institutions.
Your project should also be supported by a financial back-up plan. As work proceeds, we can arrange for expenditure supervision, and thus ensure that the financial plan is being properly adhered to.
Watching it grow
Once work has got under way, project supervision is essential. To guarantee timely completion of each phase, USI INTERNATIONAL INC can arrange for the proper coordination of the various different contractors.
Our supervision also takes account of another vital aspect of such projects: ensuring that all work takes place in conformance with international and/or regional standards. care at this phase can save expensive modifications later!
A further aspect of supervision involves the correct positioning and marking of piping, cable ducts, lighting, and high and low voltage power supplies.
Finally, there are control and security systems, where installation requires particular care and expertise. This is another area in which our experienced supervision will be invaluable.
Equipping the health care facility through procurement and supply
Procurement & Supply
Comprehensive attention to details
By definition, a turnkey project is intended to give the customer a healthcare facility that is complete down to the last detail. As you would expect, USI INTERNATIONAL INC can help you source the complete range of equipment your own project will require.
Appliances, Furniture, Fixtures, and Consumables:
Your project will also need a wide range of other equipment- for laboratories, pharmacies, kitchens and laundry equipment, to name just four. Whatever you need, USI INTERNATIONAL INC can make sure it is supplied direct.
We can also advise you on your choice of consumables (e.g. reagents and prosthetic materials), and simultaneously set up the structures for their scheduled deliveries.
Efficiency in inventory
The selection and purchase of hospital equipment and supplies can be an extremely complex affair. That’s why there are advantages in asking USI INTERNATIONAL INC to deliver the complete inventory in a turnkey project.
such a “single supplier” agreement not only enables you to obtain all the equipment specified in the final design at competitive prices, it can also be extremely efficient.
Alternatively, we will be equally pleased to assist you in negotiating individual procurement agreements.
Keeping your information flowing
These days, operational efficiency depends more and more on automation. Just think of patient registration, diagnostic and treatment records, and interdepartmental data transfer – not to mention local area networks and patient invoicing! We have considerable experience in this field and are happy to put it at your disposal.
Top equipment at the lowest prices
At USI INTERNATIONAL INC, we’ve built up a unique and extensive databank that gives us an unrivalled overview of the hospital equipment that is currently available worldwide. In other words, we can find you exactly the equipment you need. And the advantages don’t stop there: our price/quality analyses guarantee that you’ll get the best possible equipment at the best possible price.
Long-term operating satisfaction starts with logistics and installation
Logistics & Installation
Getting it there and setting it up – reliably
Before your equipment can be properly installed, it first has to arrive on time and when it gets there, it also has to function properly. USI INTERNATIONAL INC has the experience to make sure both these demands are met.
Right on the button!
Where necessary, we provide you with pre-installation drawings, so that buildings and/or utilities can be adapted before the equipment arrives.
With our installation specialists on site, we also ensure that all work meets our exacting standards and is finished in minimum time.
Getting it right – right on time
You want the right goods to arrive on site at the right time and in the right condition. So do we.
That’s why timing and quality control are vital. The first step is to ensure that all goods and equipment arrive at our warehouses well in time for shipping. once we’ve received them, we check them for completeness, quality and operation – and, vitally, for conformity to specification.
if necessary, we also re-pack and re-label them so related items can be forwarded together. The benefits of this are obvious when the goods arrive on site: installation can take place rapidly and efficiently on a room-by-room basis.
Right on site
However difficult the route, USI INTERNATIONAL INC uses reliable shipping to ensure equipment arrives undamaged – and right where it has to be installed. by using the logistics of just-in-time delivery, we see to it that you lose no time waiting and that the building site also remains free of unnecessary clutter. in short. We do everything to keep your project running on schedule.
The efficiency of hospital services is guaranteed by commissioning and training
Commissioning & Training
Coming on stream – and staying on course
Like healthcare providers worldwide, you intend your new facilities to give many years of efficient service. Elsewhere we have outlined the USI INTERNATIONAL INC services that can provide you with precisely the facilities you need. Here, we first show how we can help you round off construction and installation by bringing your equipment on stream. We then explain how our training services can lay the basis for optimal long-term performance.
Service And Maintenance Training
…and keep them running
Your need to train staff for service and maintenance duties will depend largely on the levels of service and maintenance they are expected to carry out. here, too, we can help you arrange training on-site, or in-depth service and maintenance courses at the manufacturers.
Commissioning New Equipment
The last step before your successful start
Once installation is complete, USI INTERNATIONAL INC can arrange for the functional testing of all equipment, and thereby ensure that it operates according to the manufacturers’ specifications. Responsibility for the equipment will be transferred to hospital management only when this testing is complete.
Run things properly…
The complexity of your equipment is likely to vary, together with the expertise of those who have to operate it.
That’s why your training needs will probably be different from department to department, and from one piece of equipment to another. Once again, USI INTERNATIONAL INC tailor-made approach can find you the appropriate solutions. Whether your medical staff need to be trained on-site or at the manufacturers’ training facility, in groups or one-to-one, we’ll make sure you get just what you require to keep everything and everyone running smoothly.

Preventive & Corrective Maintenance
Better than cure!
Equipment breakdowns can severely aggravate the efficient running of a healthcare facility. if you want to keep downtimes to a minimum, thorough and rapid repair is a must. But this is possible only if the proper preventive and corrective programs have already been developed.
USI INTERNATIONAL INC can help you negotiate maintenance contracts with the equipment manufacturers or local third party companies. if desired, we can also set up a maintenance workshop, arrange for spare parts, and train the maintenance crew.
Help outside the surgery – to help others inside it
Your new facility must become operational in accordance with every aspect of the original project concept and design. You may also need to meet specific manpower requirements that involves specialised training, or the recruitment of specialised staff. Here, too, we can find you exactly the solution you’re looking for.
