This project included the demolition of the existing rack, installation of new piles / foundations, installation of the new tankcar rack and the installation of new piping and electrical. This project was challenging in that a very short window was allotted for the entire project to be completed to minimize the amount of down time.
It was critical that the vendor committed to a delivery date and construction schedule. Northern Platforms Ltd, a preferred supplier on previous projects to both the engineering firm & the end user, was chosen for the project based on the following criteria:
Over a three day period, all the structural steel components of the tankcar loading rack as well as the 16 new tankcar access gangways and the new operator building delivered to site.
A Northern Platforms Ltd project manager was in communication daily with the site manager confirming the start date. As soon as Northern Platforms Ltd had the go ahead, the installation of the tankcar loading rack began. Northern Platforms Ltd had committed to take no more than 5 to 6 days to complete the installation.
The overall project was completed on time, on budget and the end user now has a world class tankcar loading facility that everyone is proud to put their name on.
