Red Lion SAR Facility mecs, inc
The Red Lion SAR project is a spent-acid regeneration facility
located at a petroleum refinery in Delaware City, Delaware.
The facility is owned by a Fortune 100 chemical company
and is constructed on land leased from the refinery at the
perimeter of the property.
Off-Shore Platform P53 Quip s.a.
During detailed design, the engineering team used Bentley
software to constantly review progress, which allowed team
members to view the layout of the facility and make changes
to streamline construction, operation, and, ultimately, future
maintenance throughout the life of the plant. By using the
visualization software on a daily basis, the 3D modelers were
able to reduce interferences by 50 to 75 percent before even
using the clash-detection software.
Located 120 kilometers off the Brazil coast and moored
at a depth of 1,080 meters, this floating producing unit
(FPU) platform will have the capacity to produce and
process 180,000 barrels of gas a day and 6 million
normal cubic meters of gas. The FPU will not stock the
produced oil and gas in its tanks, as they are immediately
transferred to other platforms.
Quip S. A. developed the FPU P53 platform and
presented all review sessions using Bentley Navigator,
which gave the engineers and technical team access
to 3D visualization so potential problems could be
identified in advance. This was the first 3D visualization
initiative in Brazilian offshore projects and now other
Brazilians EPCs are starting to adopt this concept.
