How Chamco Helped a North American Energy Producer Protect Their Refinery Expansions
Due to the expansion of their refinery, the need to replace their portable foam equipment at the Northern Edmonton refinery, and their goal to add the addition of new tanks, a North American energy producer needed an upgrade to their existing fire foam package. This upgrade was essential to be compliant with the fire code protection requirements.
As the bid winner, Chamco was awarded the replacement of three fire foam packages.
The Challenge: Design, Time, and Regulatory Requirements
Chamco was responsible for the design and testing of this significant upgrade. This project presented three key challenges: design, time constraints, and regulatory requirements.
