Ensuring plant operates flawlessly
Equate Petrochemicals was planning for a major shutdown of their manufacturing plant for a period of 30 days in order to perform an overhaul of their facility. This meant that the existing sea water cooling system would not be operational during the shutdown and would not be able to service the air separation plant, resulting in an extended start-up period for the facility

Plant maintenance works
A turn-key solution for the plant operators
26.2 MW of temporary cooling solution consisting of six 600 kW chillers and nine 2.5 MW cooling towers along with all the ancillaries was installed within a short time. This was a complete turn-key project where in Aggreko designed, installed, commissioned and provided operations and maintenance support to the customer. Once the project began it became apparent that additional 20% cooling was required over the original agreed specification. Due to Aggreko’s world-wide network of depots, we were able to quick move equipment and bring into country to support the projects need.

We have global expertise with local presence to support your cooling needs
Operations continued despite the partial shutdown
Because of Aggreko’s turn-key solution, Equate was able to keep portions of its plant operational during the overhaul, resulting in drastically reduced start-up time when they resumed full operation
Shutdown of our petrochemical plant was quite a challenge given the time frame and on site conditions. We found Aggreko to be the only power and temperature control provider in Kuwait with the capability and prior experience to confidently take on a project of this nature.
