Because of severe space constraints, conventional systems could not be adapted, and improvisations had to be made.
THE CHALLENGE :
- All RCC members had been exposed to a fire explosion and were suffering considerable local damage thus compromising safety of the staff as well as posing an environmental threat.
THE ODDS :
- All work had to be completed within the 20-day shutdown period.
OUR RESPONSE :
- Initially, the damage was evaluated and the existing design was assessed, on the basis of which a retrofit method was provided
- We grouted the damaged core sections of concrete while patch repaired the damaged concrete sections and reinforced some of the structural members with fibre-wrapping system
