Esso Fawley Refinery
Furmanite produces $multi-million savings for Esso
Customer: Esso Fawley Refinery
Esso’s unit 1 boiler at Fawley was shutdown for repair. The unit 2 boiler had developed a superheater tube leak. The challenge was to carry out a repair, the alternative was a shutdown of the major processing units.
There was more bad news for the Furmanite team. The primary superheater tube leak was directed in the worst possible place – in dead space 102ft above ground level. Plus it was directing 1690psi of steam on to an adjoining tube.
