Columns are one of the most important parts of the oil and gas refineries
The maintenance & inspection of the column is necessary to clean, fix, and revamp process equipment.
The major challenge while carrying out the maintenance & inspection is safely accessing the height of around 50 to 90meters.
Climbing outside and around equipment can be hazardous because of cluttered platforms and scaffolding close to ladders that may poke into the ladder cages. Therefore a strong system is required to lift the manpower to the exact location in a limited time.
APEL Mast Climbing Work Platform (MCWP) for column maintenance & inspection is a safe & efficient solution.
Mast Climbers can be quickly installed & dismantle as compared to traditional scaffolding and saves a lot of pre & post shutdown time.
It reduces overall shutdown time by quickly lift manpower to the exact and optimum position where the work is to be carried out.
Be it planned or unplanned shutdown, APEL MCWP is safe, fast and most efficient solution for column M&I.
