Summary

Industrial Services Ropes Team Turns "No Way" Into Project Success

8 day window for the replacement of 2 wear plates in coke chutes for an Athabasca Oil Sands client just north of Fort McMurray.

Project plan was to weld multiple sheets of AR 400 wear plate together on the ground to form a 13 meter by 3 meter pie-shaped plate and lift it in position as a whole. The plate was then welded into position following welding procedures and an inspection and test plan developed in-house by Acuren engineers.  

The 20,000 lb plate was lifted into place with a 110 ton crane in conjunction with IRATA certified rope technicians.  Welding done via ropes by welders with IRATA certifications.

Challenge

Scope, manpower and access obstacles meant this team had to do some critical thinking on their feet without impacting the outage window. 

What We Did

It's not magic, but rather the combination of access optimization expertise, decades of experience and an appetite for problem solving.
