Project was divided into pre-shutdown, shutdown, and post shutdown work. To remove the vacuum tower, lifting and tailing lugs had to be designed and installed. Vacuum condensers and ejectors and associated piping, instrumentation and electrical were also replaced.
The new tower was “pre-dressed” to the extend feasible to minimize down time during the turnaround. A new platform was required to integrate the existing access stairway to the Tower. The design included all piping, structural steel, electrical, instrumentation and tie-ins to the existing plant.
Electrical heat tracing was planned and installed post shutdown.
Responsible for coordinating construction and providing field support. Working closely with our client and contractors was key to completing this project safely on time and under budget.
