Citrus Plant Rebuild

For this Procter & Gamble citrus manufacturing plant, an unfortunate fire caused damage to their facilities, infrastructure, and power, as well as losses of manufacturing output and displaced employees.

Fluor supported the Client with a rapid response and a range of technical expertise and services to quickly assist P&G in setting up a provisional production facility within 80 days.

Fluor then completed a detailed conceptual study within three months, which led to the award of a contract to rebuild the entire facility.

Working within a highly compressed schedule, Fluor provided engineering, procurement, project management, and construction management services to rebuild Procter & Gamble's citrus juice plant within seven months.


Client's Challenge

When a carbon dioxide storage tank ruptured, the plant was badly damaged in the ensuing blast.

Fluor was called in to make emergency repairs and to assist Procter & Gamble in setting up a provisional production facility within 80 days.

The facility features fully integrated microcomputer operation, clean-in-place systems, and includes provision for automated raw material recovery prior to cleaning of the facility during product changes.
