For this project, APEX provided MEP engineering services in support of the reconfiguration of the Ball Honing area. The scope of work included the relocation of existing machines as well as the installation of new machines as part of a process reconfiguration effort. APEX was presented with the desired new locations for the equipment, and was tasked with developing new utility routing plans and the associated engineering to support these utility reconfigurations. Utilities included mechanical (domestic cooling water, compressed air) and electrical service feeds to the equipment. Because of the distances required, some of the equipment required re-powering from an alternate load center within the shipyard. Additionally, to support a new spray-booth and curing oven, APEX's design included a new ventilation system with fans and duct routing, and automation controls that accommodated the loading of the processes.
Due to a strict requirement that process equipment must remain on-line at all times, staging of equipment and utility relocations were critical. To do this, APEX and CCI collaborated to produce a detailed staging plan for how each move would be accomplished.
