Dimensions – 120 TONS, 14.0m Length X 4.8m Diameter

THE CHALLENGE – The most challenging aspect was to lift the existing heat exchanger that had no lifting points and design a lifting arrangement without welding new lifting points since the plant was live. Also, due to space restrictions between pipe racks and existing structures, another challenge was to position the crane and opt for a specific configuration without disturbing ongoing maintenance works.

OUR SOLUTION – Using our Liebherr 600 Ton Crawler with 54.0M main boom configuration of SDBW, our technical and field teams designed and constructed a custom made spreader beam and using basket lifting belts, we successfully lifted the exchanger from the existing foundation.
