Performance Simulations

Rally worked with a vendor and the Client to complete furnace performance simulations, prior to developing a material requisition.
Rally provided a Level 3 Construction Schedule, to capture construction activities during initial scoping. This schedule was used as a basis for the CAPEX estimate.

Successful Project Management

  • Rally managed the convection section vendor to ensure that the convection arrived on site in time for the planned turnaround.
  • All project activities from kick off to commissioning of equipment were completed in 10 months.
