OblinCEA completed a potentially difficult and technical installation for a well-known drinks manufacturer in Chachoengsao, Thailand.
OblinCEA provided Heavy Transport, Heavy Lift and the installation of several parts of distillation columns, evaporators, separators, and fans.
All parts were discharged through the night at Laem Chabang Port and loaded onto several flatbed trailers. Due to its size and weight, the Evaporator Chamber section was loaded onto a multi-axle hydraulic trailer. The parts were then transported under escort and unloaded at the factory’s lay-down area. After a site inspection, two mobile cranes were moved into position and readied for the lifts.
The Evaporator Chamber was lifted by both cranes until the chamber was vertical then the smaller crane was unhooked while the larger 500-tonne crane continued the lift into the facility. OblinCEA teams stationed within the building ensured the safe lowering of the evaporator through the floors of the factory.
The 16-metre distillation chamber was installed using the same lift technique as the Evaporator, OblinCEA teams once again were located on each floor to ensure it was lowered safely and correctly aligned to the previously installed Evaporator. Smaller parts were unloaded and assembled at the installation site and lifted into the facility. All the project was completed in three days within the given timeframe and budget.
