NOVA PE1 Gas Phase (R3) Expansion
In 2012, Ledcor was contracted by NOVA Chemicals to fabricate and assemble modules for an additional polyethylene unit in their already existing Polyehtylene-1 Joffre plant near Red Deer, Alberta.
The expansion project involved the construction of a 421 KTA capacity, single-train, Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Unit. Ledcor’s initial scope included 18 piperack modules. Through Ledcor’s pre-construction efforts, we were able to identify three additional piperack modules, as well as, 30 structural steel modularization opportunities which significantly reduced manhours onsite.
The $20M project was completed in the summer of 2015 and took 116,000 manhours.
