Ondeo Industrial Solutions, part of Degrémont Industry, has successfully completed its second fire main cross link project this year at INEOS’ chemical manufacturing plant in Grangemouth, Scotland. The industrial water management company’s Site Services team completed the project with a perfect safety record, to budget and five weeks ahead of schedule.
The project required the excavation by hand of a 45 metre fire main section adjacent to high voltage cables, followed by the construction and installation of the remaining 300 metres of 500mm HPPE fire main at INEOS’ Grangemouth-based mature oil refinery complex. INEOS is a leading global manufacturer of petrochemicals, speciality chemicals and oil products that are used by businesses in a variety of markets, including packaging and foods, fuels and lubricants, construction, automotive and transport, and many more.
The fire main, which is the sixth large diameter water project to be installed at Grangemouth by the Site Services team, was designed by the Ondeo Industrial Solutions Engineering & Projects department at Grangemouth. Following planning and an incident free installation process, the fire main was successfully tested and commissioned five weeks ahead of schedule.
“The experience and knowledge that the Ondeo bring to a project, regardless of timeframe and budget limits, is the driving force behind the team’s success,” said Billy Fulton, Project Manager at INEOS. “As well as a professional attitude and meticulous planning process, the excellent communication between the Ondeo Site Services team and the INEOS project team was vital to the safe and speedy completion of this project.”
Following completion of the project, Barry Paton, Site Services Manager, Ondeo Industrial Solutions, said: “This successful project has again proven that the highly experienced Ondeo Site Services team has the necessary skills and attitude to deliver industry leading service on a tight timescale and budget, while ensuring the highest standards for health and safety.”
