Research & Development

The FORGES TARDIEU R&D Department is staffed with engineers responsible for directly developing new mechanical engineered products as well as industrial technologists and specialists who are tasked with applied research in specific technological fields, in view of facilitating future mechanical engineered product and process developments. Both aims and objectives are targeted towards the sugar as well as the oil and gas industries at large (mill houses, back end/front end, refineries, onshore and near-shore oil and gas terminals, co-generation units, etc.).


This department is of strategic importance to the future development of the FORGES TARDIEU engineering group activities. In the recent past, it has developed a series of new sugar production-related equipment such as patented Vertical Massecuite Reheaters (VMR), in-line heavy-duty Long Stick Shredders (LSS), heavy-duty Automated Core Samplers (ACS), etc.
