LOCATION Brandon, Manitoba
COMPLETION DATE 2012
CLIENT Koch Fertilizer Canada
Koch Fertilizer Canada is located in Brandon MB. DMS had been asked to provide their expertise in aiding Koch to remove the Carbamate Stripper for repair. It was decided that the repair of the vessel was to take place where it was originally fabricated in Milan, Italy.
DMS was the Prime Contractor for Koch Fertilizer’s 101J Air Compressor installation project. DMS provided all process piping (fabrication and installation), equipment installations, secondary steel (fabrication and installation), and insulation work. DMS managed the HVAC and building supply contractors and coordinated the electrical contractor within our schedule
Carbamate Stripper Repair
DMS was involved from all aspects of the execution from engineering the lifts, to engineering the saddle which the vessel was transported in, to procuring a leased Boeing 747 for freighting the unit.
In execution, all piping had to be disconnected, all electrical and instrumentation was also removed. The Boilermakers then proceeded to remove the vessel from its structure. The unit was placed in the transport saddle and placed on a truck to Winnipeg International Airport. It was then loaded onto the 747 and flown to Milan, Italy for repair. Once repaired, the vessel was flown back to Winnipeg, taken off the plane and trucked back into Brandon, where the vessel was reinstalled.
