Shutdown Planning - CR Asia Group


  • An Aromatics producer needed to replace all internals and over 1,280 m3 of adsorbent during a Parex re-load to improve yields


  • Having performed over 25 similar projects, we mobilized specialist equipment and crews to execute the work


  • We completed the job in a new world record time and generated significant returns, as the unit started up earlier than expected
