Chemical Plant Expansion Gets Big Lift from Deep South
When complete later this year, the Tiger AO4 expansion project at Shell’s Geismar Chemical Plant in Ascension Parish, Louisiana, will add an additional 425,000 tons of capacity to the facility—making it the largest alpha olefins producer in the world. Alpha olefins are used to produce household detergents, plastics, synthetic lubricants, and drilling fluids, among other useful products.
Tiger AO4 is a complex expansion that includes the fabrication, movement and installation of large, often heavy, process equipment including reactors, columns, vessels and pre-assembled modules. The Deep South team, working closely with Turner Industries and Jacobs Engineering, helped keep the expansion on track to begin commercial production by end of 2018 with its comprehensive jack, transport and lift experience and equipment.
