Project description:The project's challenge is to replace the original 1950's chimney with a new one. The flare stack for the petro-chemical industry had to be designed for an easy installation as the removal of the old and the replacement of the new had to take place during a three day shutdown period.
"The model makes use of the ladder tools extensively and being able to calculate weights of assemblies was perfect for producing lift plans. Thanks to the collision control tools erection went without a hitch and the old stack was removed and replaced in a weekend." - Nial Ball, Project Engineer, Westbury Park Engineering Ltd
