CR3 Thailand (CRAT) recently executed a Parex reload project for PTTGC #4 in Rayong, Thailand.

The job required the most comprehensive planning to ensure a timely completion, as the schedule was tight. However, the team from CRAT faced multiple challenges. The unloading phase of the job took longer than expected because the agglomerated absorbent was difficult to remove. The team needed to make up this lost time, so decided to weld the intermediate pipes on the top platform of the vessel, instead of inside the chambers where they would normally be welded. This initiative reduced the fit up time on the grids significantly and allowed the job to finish on schedule.

The client was pleased with CRAT’s initiative to overcome the challenges faced. The job was well managed and executed safely.
