New Chlorine Plant - Ineos Chlor

  • Location: Runcorn
  • Client: Ineos Chlor
  • Duration: 113 weeks
  • Consultants: Fluor

The plant produces chlorine by the membrane system and is the sole source of chlorine in the UK.

Clugston’s works were carried out in two phases. Phase one was the enabling works including the crushing and reuse of demolished structures as backfill, deep concrete drainage, large diameter GRP pipework laid in large open cut trenches and breaking of piling.

Phase two has included all civil engineering works to the multi storey structures of the two process buildings, 120m long cell room, twelve transformer bays, chlorine compression and liquifaction plant, HCl synthesis plant, H2SO4 storage area, toxic air and cleaning plant, hypo production plant, emergency absorption plant, cooling tower area and evaporators.

The civil engineering works have included drainage, pilecaps, large and deep foundations for tanks and vessels, water retaining structures to the cooling towers, high quality floor slabs at ground and upper floor levels, chemical resistant resin flooring, large scale diamond drilling and hundreds of concrete plinths and penetrations. Works were undertaken on both the brownfield cleared site and within the existing plant complex requiring compliance within the type of rigorous permit regime with which we have extensive experience through projects carried out in the petrochemical and other process industries.

Our works, with resource levels peaking at 150 personnel, have been managed and carried out in a multi disciplinary environment requiring close coordination of contractors and resources to ensure that the overall plant objectives were achieved safely.
