Procurement and Construction

Process 26, via its construction joint venture P26SIMJV, was successful in negotiating the final package of capital works with Adelaide Brighton Cement at the Cockburn Cement Munster operations.

This package of work used the skill sets of the Joint Venture to maximum advantage, including 3D modelling, detail drafting, fabrication, insulation & cladding, project management and construction.

The scope of works involved upgrading the exhaust gas cleaning process for Lime Kiln 5 by installing a heat exchanger, and converting an electrostatic precipitator into a bag filter. This scope included fabrication, supply, demolition, construction, tie in and commissioning activities and the supply and installation of a 115m exhaust stack was added to the scope during the works. During the tie in period of ten days, 150m of redundant ducting was removed whilst new ducting was installed and connected.    

The works were performed safely within the confines of an existing and busy area of the plant.
