Grouting various types of equipment at a refinery

The challenge

In order to install a new Hydrocracker at a refinery in the Botlek, approximately 60 pieces of new equipment had to be installed on various concrete foundations. These foundations had to be covered with Chockfast red epoxy grouting, which is specialist work.

EMHA’s solution

The main contractor on the site approached EMHA to carry out all groutwork for the equipment, including various pump baseframes, blowers, centrifugal compressors and a reciprocating suction compressor. In order to guarantee the quality of the end product, we worked with checklists that were signed off in conjunction with the client (based on the API686 recommended practices).
