Vergaengineering has organized a course on the following topic: “Fired Heater Modularization”. Modularization represent one of main drivers for competiveness in our sector, especially for projects characterized by remoteness and site security issues. The modularization approach requires a completely different project execution strategy compared to the conventional approach, starting from the design and procurement phases. The course has been organized in two separate sections. The first specifically focused on loading and sea transportation of complex and heavy modules, with the contribution of a specialized heavy lifting and shipping contractor. The second section reviewed in details the topic, starting from modularization decision process, main drivers and constrains, risks assessment, case studies and lessons learned. Particular focus has been given on all engineering and design associated aspects, including lifting and handling methods and criteria.
