Al Faris completes steam box installation at new waste to energy plant

Al Faris Group has said it installed a steam box at a new waste to energy plant in Dubai using specialised in-house modular towers and other skidding equipment. The challenging installation was done at a height of 2.8m and the steam box was delivered in two parts, the bottom weighing 27-tonnes (t) and the top weighing 40t, the firm noted.

In a statement, the company said they were awarded the project “due to industry reputation and expertise involving high complexity in planning and execution,”

It added: “The centre of gravity (COG) of the top section of the steam box was away from both the lifting points during the lifting of the load from the trailer, which could have caused the load to slide.”

He added, “In order to avoid this situation, we made a temporary packing arrangement of stools at the corner of the steam box. A project of this nature requires exceptionally detailed planning to orchestrate the complex activities necessary for ensuring uninterrupted safe services.”

The top of the steam box was tandem lifted for top and tail operation using Al Faris’ 250t and 200t mobile cranes. It was then placed onto skid tracks and skidded into a temporary position before the bottom was placed on the skid tracks, the firm explained. The top section had to be lifted to allow the bottom to be skidded underneath, before it was lowered and both parts of the Steam Box were joined together for final installation, the statement concluded.
