Gas Recovery Unit

DCM successfully assembled and subsequently moved, over four kilometers, a Super Module assembly which weighed almost one million kilograms. It was one of the largest and most complicated heavy lifts ever performed in Canada. The Super Module consisted of 9 Alberta sized modules and 1 valve platform which was stick built on top of the 9 modules prior to the move. Final dimensions of the Super Module were 21 m long, 14 m wide and 25 m tall weighing in at 935 metric tons. The Super Module was lifted and moved by using 2 SPMT trains. The project also included all tie-ins, the installation of 4 additional modules, 1 vendor skid and 2 large columns (65 m tall and 36 m tall). Due to the size and weight of the vessels, both columns were required to be dressed in place, which created unique challenges for the project team.
