Customer Challenge

The customer needed to remove, load, prepare for shipment & offload, and replace 4 ID fans weighing 100,000 lbs each. This needed to be done within the shutdown schedule, while complying with site safety conditions, within budget, and in extremely tight work areas.

Our Solution

We developed an engineered rigging plan that ensured our clients obligation to overcome their challenges. Through multiple site visits, engineering support, and field management input, a unique rigging plan was created. The plan utilized specialty header beams, counter weights, a gantry system, 50 and 65 ton trilifters, and SPMT trailers. Once the plan was presented to the client and owner, and approved, the plan was put into motion. Over the next 30 days engineering was complete and blessed for execution. Removal of the fan rotors started in late September and the last rotor was installed on November 3rd. This project was finished on schedule, without incident, and under budget.
