  • The mechanical isolation of refinery units mostly at units battery limits (spectacle blinds and stub out installation from 1 ½” to 24”
  • The mechanical isolation of equipment(Towers, Vessels, Reactors, Heat Exchangers)
  • Replacement and maintenance of various type (check, gate, mov) and size of valves (1/2” to 36”)
  • Maintenance of 22 heat exchangers and 7 aircoolers at Unit 32 using our 25TN fully automated self owned bundle extractor
  • Construction and erection of piping of various diameters (1/2” up to 24”) and various metals (CS, SS, P9, P11, P20)
  • Full QA/QC throughout the whole construction and erection procedure
  • Full technical folder submission according to international standards (hydraulic test packages, as built drawings, WIRs, WPQs, PQRs)
  • The project was started in mid July and ended in mid September.
  • Over 200 persons (includes Engineers, foremen, qualified fitters, welders, crane operators, scaffolding technicians, insulation install technicians, specialized helpers) were occupied throughout the project duration
  • 3 large telescopic cranes > 80TN
  • 3 large mobile cranes up to 25TN
