The project included a new AO-3 unit and modifications to the existing adjacent AO-2 unit. The ID-3 Project included significant debottlenecking and modifications to the existing ID-2 unit, including a new C15/16 East column and SYLTHERM™ furnace. Three cuts were produced: C11/12, C13/14 and C15/16. These were fed to OXO alcohol units to produce alcohols for detergent manufacture.
Fluor was also responsible for the feasibility phase work on a new column for ID-1 to allow early production of C15/16 before ID-3 and the new alcohol plant were on line.
Fluor Philippines provided detailed engineering. The scope of work included PDS modeling, ISOs, pipe stress, structural engineering and design, electrical and instrumentation design and process hydraulics.
