The project scope was divided into pre-shutdown, shutdown, and post-shutdown work phases. New lifting and tailing lugs were engineered and installed to safely remove the original vacuum tower. Vacuum condensers and ejectors, as well as adjacent piping, instrumentation, and electrical, were replaced at the same time.
The new tower was pre-dressed as much as feasible to shorten the duration of the turnaround. A new platform was custom engineered to integrate the existing access stairway with the new tower.
The design scope included all piping, structural steel, electrical, instrumentation and tie-ins to the existing plant. Electrical heat tracing was planned and installed post-shutdown.
Rally was responsible for coordinating the construction and providing field support. We worked closely with our Client and contractors to complete this project safely, on time, and under budget.
