Aurex Constructors was awarded the Auto-Thermal Reformer (ATR) B Train shutdown project by Sasol at their chemical operations facility in Sasolburg. The project team successfully completed this challenging, highly technical job almost 40 hours ahead of schedule.
The project team executed mechanical, rigging and piping work on the ATR B train. Aurex sub-contracted services for the project that included cranage, machining, non-destructive testing, including replica testing, and heat treatment. Repairs to the 20-inch HUC line were of a highly technical nature and required welding of the heavy wall pipe in accordance with a complex welding procedure where exotic materials are involved. These periodic maintenance and repairs are scheduled to ensure the ongoing sustainability and reliability of the facility.
Stuart Kent, CEO of Aurex Constructors said, “This project afforded us the opportunity to expand our hot-work expertise into the Sasolburg area. Our skilled project teams demonstrated their ongoing dedication to delivering high quality work responsibly to our customer”.
