Their challenge

This project presented several major challenges from a design, supply, and field erection perspective. The client required that the work be completed on a tight schedule, and the engineering design needed to be integrated with plans for material procurement from other project contributors. In addition, many of the field conditions for this project were impossible to assess until after the removal of existing equipment.

Our solution

Despite these challenges, our team was able to develop an installation plan and sequence in conjunction with the installation contractor and hopper fabricator. This plan formed the basis for the replacement hopper design, and this early collaboration helped ensure that our integrated team developed the most efficient, effective plan.
