Rotork Works Through the Night Assisting Repair of Fire Damage
The fire, which broke out in a pump house on 28th September, took almost two days to put out at Shell’s largest refinery in the world, which has a refining capacity of 500,000 barrels a day.
Urgent work is now in progress to repair the damage with the minimum of delay. Rotork’s specialist Site Services department at Singapore is making an important contribution to this effort by initially helping Shell to actuate new valves for the most urgent repairs. For maximum expediency, Rotork electric actuators installed in unaffected areas of the site are being removed and shipped to the Rotork Singapore workshop for fitting to new critical plant replacement valves. Rotork engineers are also assisting with the onsite installation and commissioning of these actuated valves
At the same time, new Rotork IQPro intelligent electric actuators have been ordered for new valves to be installed in the site as a part of the longer term repair programme. Many of these actuators will also be fitted to the valves at Rotork’s Singapore workshop and delivered as complete factory tested motorised packages to site, where Rotork engineers will provide installation and commissioning services.
