While the mechanical equipment was being assembled, the pipes were prefabricated, based on piping engineering from BMA. We prepared routing plans for 6,000 pipes and 3,750 isometric drawings for manufacturing. For assembly reasons, the pipes with larger diameters had been prefabricated and installed with the main equipment.
Last year, we completed all mechanical and piping assembly tasks. The electrical work and the installation and connection of M&C equipment were done as well. After the cold water test runs, the appa
ratus and pipes were insulated, which was followed by the mechanical equipment tests.
This spring then, the plant was commissioned: sugar beet processing was started first, which will be followed, after a number of changes, by refinery operation.
