Delayed coking turnaround involving three civil engineering projects

Innovative project construction phasing, and the combination of precast, cast-in-place and pre-tensioned concrete construction technologies resulted in a proper restoration

Petroleum refiners have been affected by changing environmental regulations, as well as the age of their facilities, requiring many to make significant capital investments. One major refinery located in the southwestern US had three major high-priority civil infrastructure projects scheduled concurrently for a delayed coking unit turnaround (T/A). Keys to success for this challenging project were innovative project construction phasing, the combination of precast, cast-in-place and post-tensioned concrete construction technologies, as well as incorporation of other durable materials for construction in creating a process coined the "T/A civil approach" (TCA).
