Catalyst Paper upgraded the existing surface condenser to increase efficiency and capacity at their Crofton facility. Allnorth provided detailed design and engineering services for several phases which included 3D scanning of existing roadways and equipment, to confirm crane clearance and crane lift plan validation, piping and structural steel design, and new equipment layout.
Once the potential crane collisions were identified and resolved, Allnorth scanned the rest of the facility to generate a complete as-built model of the entire project area, which assisted the detailed design phase. Use of the 3D model enabled us to route new piping, place structural steel and locate equipment without any clashes. In addition, we minimized field connections, which maximized the installation efficiency, allowing the equipment to be installed during a short shutdown of instrumentation to provide improved system control.
