This project involved the design, fabrication and installation of a series of hot dipped galvanized steel maintenance work platforms to provide safe access to existing equipment.
The challenge on this project was the extremely congested layout of the existing Ammonia Condensers, ammonia refrigerant lines, water pipes and electrical cables, which meant that the platforms had to be located at several different elevations with connecting staircases and safety handrails.
In addition, one evaporative Ammonia Condenser was removed along with the ammonia refrigerant piping, water pipes and electrical cables. A new cooling tower was installed in its place requiring modification and addition to the existing supporting steel work.
