Mosaic New Wales Sulfur Melter and Material Handling
Matrix PDM Engineering developed an engineer-led EPC strategy, leveraging proprietary melting and filtering technology, sulfur handling and storage experience, and executing a modular design, fabrication, and construction strategy to shorten the schedule, reduce risk, and reduce on-site construction.
The new sulfur melter plant heats solid sulfur to liquid form and mixes with existing molten sulfur supply. With world sulfur markets changing, this method provides a new opportunity to ensure a more reliable and low cost supply.
Matrix PDM managed and executed the commissioning by working with our client, vendors, and construction contractors to develop a detailed start-up and commissioning plan. The Matrix PDM Control Systems Integration Team, along with field technicians, executed pre-commissioning through performance guarantee in six weeks. The team provided classroom and hands-on training for the operations and maintenance staff that enabled them to work alongside our in-house team during commissioning; this made for a seamless transition during turnover and project closeout.
