At PCK Refinery Schwedt it is time for the next shutdown: ‘Optimix13’ will take place in 2013. Several plants will be revamped. Basis for a successful shutdown is a thorough planning and preparation in the long run. EDL has been awarded with specific tasks to be performed within two important core areas: the vacuum distillation unit 3 and the FCC plant.  

The EDL team will engineer and put up a new vacuum column for Deep Cut operation (6.6m diameter, 41m height and 400t lift weight) including all off-sites within the vacuum distillation unit 3, as well as the removal of the old and installation of a new reactor (6.1m diameter, 48m height and 426t lift weight) in the FCC plant.  

The replacement of the above mentioned equipment and parts is supposed to take place within 21 days in summer 2013. To complete the task as fast as possible, two large-size cranes will have to operate at close range at the same time. The erection of the cranes as well as equipment assembly associated with all other installation and tie-in work will be another big challenge for EDL’s ‘PCK team’ in terms of logistics due to the short shutdown time.
