In 2010, we were appointed to conduct a front end engineering design study. Following board sanction of the full project in 2011, the execution programme was to commission a new burner to coincide with the completion of a planned plant shutdown in October 2012.
The objective was to design and build a fumed silica burner train, increasing capacity by 25%. The scope of work included full detailed design, plus specification of equipment and the projects execution for: Burner/Cooling tube layout including PED clarification, Main Unit Filter, Feedstock, Air and Hydrogen supplies, Environmental Emissions Abatement, Process Utilities and DCS migration from legacy system.
We were engaged on a collaborative bespoke EPCM contract, which included an equitable pain/gain mechanism designed to align the objectives with a high emphasis on SHEQ performance. All key project team members from across the supply chain were involved from the outset. The result of early involvement and collaboration was the development of critical documents, such as clear User requirements Specification, Agreed Project Objectives and Scope document, plus a detailed Assignment Execution Plan.
The project was delivered in-line with the key project objectives and critical success factors which included; zero reportable accidents/incidents, 25% increase in production capacity, project delivery within the agreed overall target cost, handover within the target month specified, full handover of project documentation within 30 days of 'mechanical completion.
