Al-Mishraq – Sulfur Purification System
Matrix PDM Engineering partnered with CTI Consulting and Al Hawarth on a $78.6 million dollar project to deliver and install a sulfur purification system. The project scope was turn-key delivery including a submerged combustion distillation, sulfur filtration, sulfur recovery unit and CO2 generation plant, including a process automation system.
Using pre-fabricated off-site construction, the entire facility was assembled in Tulsa, OK on 56 modules of 3.5m x 3.5m x 13.4m. Ninety percent of all piping was pre-fabricated and shop fit. The plant was designed to allow capacity to be doubled to one million tpy of sulfur at a future date.
All necessary QA/QC checks were done in the United States prior to export to Iraq. The final in shop evaluation included module to module shop assembly, complete P&ID checks, code required x-ray and hydrotesting, instrument and electrical checks, factory acceptance testing of the DCS. All construction personnel were trained on module design and fabrication techniques in the United States, in order to accurately install and erect in country.
Additionally, the plant standardized on a Rockwell PlantPAx platform and standard software libraries. The system includes hot-backup redundancy in controllers, networks, and HMI and historian servers. A BMS was designed and supplied using Rockwell GuardLogix safety I/O.
