CEA with Ethoxylation Plant Project
13th September 2017
CEA Project Logistics (members in Thailand, Myanmar, and Vietnam) were recently contracted for preservation services, the installation of steel and wood supports, weighing and centre of gravity (CoG) reporting as well as the loadout of 15 modules and 3 filtration vessels for an ethoxylation plant in Pasadena, Texas in the USA.
The CEA team designed, fabricated on-site and installed temporary steel and wooden supports for over 300 valves. Each support secured every valve in position to prevent damage and stress to the pipe work and other structures during transportation.
The Project Engineer for CEA assisted by providing services for the weighing of each of the 15 modules and 3 vessels and providing detailed engineering CoG weighing reports to the clients. The preservation work was carried out for every control valve and pump on each of the modules and pipe racks to ensure protection against oxidation rust and dust from moisture and air.
For the final part of the project, CEA provided a full scope of loadout services to transport the 18 units on hydraulic trailers from the fabrication shipyard to alongside the vessel at Laem Chabang Port in Thailand. Route transport surveys were carried out beforehand and a CEA escort vehicle accompanied each convoy to ensure maximum safety during the transportation. The cargo was then readied for export and loadout was completed by the vessels on-board cranes. See the gallery below for photos.
A professional job as always from CEA Project Logistics.
