Follow-Up Order for Major LDPE Compressor Overhaul
December 03, 2019
SABIC, a global leader in diversified chemicals, operates three LDPE lines at their plant in Geleen, The Netherlands. After the successful compressor overhaul of one line in 2017, Burckhardt Compression was awarded another major overhaul order for the second line. The booster/primary compressor (Ingersoll Rand) and the Hyper Compressor (Burckhardt Compression) have been in operation for over 40 years. Thanks to the detailed planning we were able to manage the scope, including a challenging foundation repair during the turnaround, according to schedule.
