Toyo Setal is a Brazilian company that was founded in 2012. It is an engineering firm that builds projects across Brazil. This company is a joint venture between Toyo Engineering Corporation and SOG Óleo e Gás SA. Toyo is a Japanese company that first started doing business in Brazil in 1965. SOG is a Brazilian firm that is one of that country’s leading engineering, procurement, and construction firms. The industries that Toyo Setal operates in includes infrastructure, energy, oil and gas, fertilizer, steel, chemical, petrochemical, and mining. The build industrial plants in a sustainable manner.
Their Sustainability and Social Responsibility policy is designed to respect and support both the environment and the local communities in which they do business. When building an industrial plant, the team at Toyo Setal will relocate rare and endangered trees. They also plant seedlings for the trees that are cut down. They also relocate animals around the project to a safe location. This includes snakes, lizards, frogs, turtles, fish, and other native species. In order to build industrial plants, they developed their EPC Portal software. This is an information management system that brings all the parts of a construction project onto one integrated platform. By using EPC Portal, Toyo Setal reduces the amount of rework that needs to be done and streamlines processes.
It also increases productivity and gives this company more predictability when completing a project. The EPC Portal software won an award at the 2014 AVEVA World Summit. This award was the “Innovations in Engineering Project Integration”. Many of their projects are done for Petrobras, the largest energy firm in Brazil. One of their projects was building the Rio de Janeiro Petrochemical Complex (COMPERJ). This project was started on 5/29/13 and was completed on 5/01/2016. Toyo Setal built two hydrogen production facilities and a substation for Petrobras. This complex uses oil procured at the oil fields in the Campos Basin and develops it into petrochemicals and light oil. In addition to constructing these buildings, they also supply materials, equipment, and electromechanical assembly. Learn More.
