Lake Charles, LA (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
A large US - based chemical company ceased manufacturing of a specialty chemical at its Lake Charles, LA site due to changing markets. The plant was part of a larger site that had on-going operations. The site owner wanted to obtain the highest possible value for the equipment and know-how, as well as have the plant and all structures safely dismantled by a date certain.
Phoenix Equipment purchased the plant and know-how, and committed to remove the plant within 2 years. By initiating a worldwide marketing campaign, Phoenix was able to sell the plant and know-how to a large Chinese chemical producer. As part of the sale, Phoenix contracted to perform the match-marking, dismantlement, packing and in-land freight at a lump sum cost. Work included rigging (4) 200 ft’ + stainless steel columns weighing over 200,000 lbs each. Work began in November 2011 and was safely completed in June 2012. In addition, to dismantling the equipment for shipment to China, Phoenix also cleaned up other structures for the site owner. The plant is expected to be operational once again in China by 2014.
