Fives undertakes a full piping project for the chemical industry

Fives' Piping Solutions division is supplying four collectors for an oven at the BOREALIS OTTMARSHEIM ammonia production unit.

This major order for the chemical industry is a full project, including design, supply, prefabrication, sub-contracting (refractory concrete and heat-sensitive paint), and documentation.

The prefabrication phase will be carried out in the Nancy workshops from October 2015 through February 2016. The timeframe is very tight, since the parts must be ready when the production unit, located in Ottmarsheim in Alsace, is stopped in March 2016.

The project also has extremely high quality standards. The work will be done to the COEDTI and DESP category III standards, with supervision by the institutions in question and 100% non-destructive inspections in order to meet the customer's documentation, inspection and quality requirements.

4 CODETI 16Mo3 DN350 collectors, including 200 DN125 fittings.
Each collector measures 18 meters and weighs 15 metric tons.
