Technological equipment installation
Beck & Pollitzer worked on a large-scale project at a gold mining plant in Russia. The scope of work including equipment installation and welding, as well as installing pipelines and absorber charges at the No. 2 oxygen station.
The main equipment consisted of heavy units, including the valve module (weighing 27 tons) and 2x oxygen compressors (weighing 33 tons each). In addition, there were 23 tons of absorbers, as well as other special equipment for working in a pure oxygen environment.
Our team were forced to use non-standard installation solutions because conditions in the workshop were constrained. Firstly, the team carried equipment using special lifting building berths. Secondly, as the absorbers and buffer tank did not fit – but all connecting pipes were unique and irreplaceable – the team cut the concrete to the required height instead. They additionally expelled all irregularities to 0.000 using a non-shrinking mixture.
