Kinleith September Shut 2016 - 1st and 4th Effect Replacement Evaporator 5

During the September shut in 2016 PFS was engaged by OJI to complete the 4th effect shell and 1B lamella replacement. We had a strict deadline of 11 days to complete the works.

The job consisted of:

  • 15 men 24 hours a day.

  • 400T mobile crane lifting 60T at 20m.

  • Strict health and safety requirements working amongst a turpentine plant.

  • Two Evaporator effects been worked on simultaneously.

  • Limited works space.

  • 100% NDT on all sealing welds.

  • All weather site

The project was delivered late on 10th day ahead of what was originally scheduled. Both The client and PFS were both happy with the outcome on the shut and would like to thank the team that worked tirelessly to make it happen.
