The CR JV company JACR were awarded the revamp project for the Hydrocrackers at SASREF in JUBAIL during their turnaround in October 2015. This project was truly a global first considering the scope of work executed and the schedule, in which all four reactors were worked upon in parallel.
Extensive pre planning and preparation was undertaken with detailed safety analysis to identify and minimise all the hazards, as well as specific rescue plans put in place for each stage of the work execution which was approved by all parties concerned.
Micro planning of all related activities during the unloading/ demolition/ asbestos testing & inspections/ new internal installation and the dense loading stages helped in closely monitoring the plan vs. actual progress situation on the job, eventually resulting in completing the jobs ahead of schedule.
This project has again demonstrated the capabilities of CR in delivering a world class project under challenging circumstances and improving on existing benchmarks to set new world standards.
