To aid the frontline healthcare professionals in their efforts, Tata Steel along with other Tata Group companies including Tata Projects and Tata Consulting Engineers have demonstrated both agility and collaborative spirit by working together on a 500-bed Greenfield hospital project being developed over a 5-acre site in Kasargod in Kerala. With design specifications and inputs from Tata Projects and Tata Consulting Engineers, Tata Steel is supplying a range of modular pre-fabricated Completely Built Units to be used primarily as quarantine and isolation cabins, rest rooms, canteens and other service units within the hospital.

These pre-fabricated units are being produced by Tata Steel’s brand Nest-In, its Tubes Division and its New Materials Business in collaboration with eight manufacturing partners across the country. Besides steel, Tata Steel is using Fibre Reinforced Polymer to manufacture quarantine units for the first time in India. FRP is positioned as a new-age alternative building material that has compelling pros that makes it a viable mass-production solution for the future.

Each 400 square meter quarantine unit can accommodate five beds and one washroom. The FRP units are made using Tata Structura hollow sections with FRP walls and roof panels. They come with factory-fitted electrical and plumbing systems as well. The FRP units offer several benefits such as being lightweight, a high strength to weight ratio and being easier and cheaper to transport. Moreover, FRP is completely corrosion-resistant and weatherproof, while offering maintenance-free service life.

Nest-In, part of Tata Steel’s Services & Solutions portfolio, has also enabled smooth manufacturing and timely supply of quarantine and isolation cabins across the country. The Company is in discussions with health authorities to explore the possibility of setting up Nest-In Covid-19 units across different parts of India.
