Bulk Fuel Terminal Vertical Turbine Fire Water Pump


OBJECTIVES

To overhaul a duplex stainless steel vertical turbine fire water pump from a bulk fuel terminal.


CHALLENGES

  • The outage window was reduced to 2 weeks due to an incoming shipment of product where availability of the fire pump was necessary.

  • The pump has been in service for 12 years and never been removed for any maintenance.

  • A 150T crane was required to lift the pump off the jetty that it is installed on, followed by a 2 crane lift to reposition horizontally on a truck for transport.
