Managing the modernization of a Vacuum Distillation Unit (VDU) in a refinery with a heavy focus on security.
Our end client, the owner of the refinery, needed to upgrade a VDU in their refiner. Efficient planning for the project was critical, as it had to be done without stopping production, in a very high-risk environment. Safety was the number one priority. To successfully carry out the project, a highly specialized team needed to be mobilized in a very short period of time. Project stakes were high, as the potential risks of project failure were substantial, from both a financial and security viewpoint.
