The Complexities of Plant Relocation

The Complexities of Plant Relocation

Plant relocation can be a complex undertaking that requires meticulous planning, communication, and preparation. A comprehensive schedule must be developed that will seamlessly ramp down the vacating facility while simultaneously phasing in production at the new plant. This should include testing and commissioning. Close coordination and communication among the plant relocation contractor, designers, and facility managers is vital to accurate schedule development. 

Detailed drawings of the equipment layout in the vacating plant will be needed when planning utilities and locating equipment in the new facility.  Existing equipment must be assessed to determine which will be relocated reused, and whether it will require refurbishment. Equipment slated for plant relocation must meets local code in the new facility. 

All relocated equipment must be meticulously identified, logged, and tagged, and utility connections and separation points must be accurately noted. Utility systems and structural modifications needed in the new plant must be identified, designed and installed to ensure that equipment installation, testing, and commissioning can smoothly occur without a hitch.
