For seven months, Harder crews carried out a robust list of turnaround scopes and ASME code repairs. Workers had only 18-inches of access to tunnel and replace 30 stainless steel trays inside four-foot columns. Teams also replaced multiple exchanger bundles, carbon and stainless-steel piping systems, and packing material in distillation columns. In a matter of just two weeks, Harder ramped up from four to 100 people onsite to manage the projects and aggressive schedules. Not only did the crew of pipe fitters, boilermakers, and laborers work day and night shifts to complete ahead of schedule, but Harder maintained productivity above 1.0 and there were no recordable injuries in 100,000 hours worked. Furthermore, QA/QC concluded turnover within 24 hours of work completion in the field.
No two projects are ever the same. At Harder, we approach each project individually, tailoring our approach to meet the needs of our client. But we bring our past experiences to the table to make sure we are always providing the best-in-class service our clients expect.
Building in and around a live unit is no problem for Harder Mechanical.
For NuStar, we built a new pipeline and installed equipment at their Oregon and Washington terminals.
