LNG plant in Arzew, Algeria
Sarens CC2800-1 Helps Revamp The LNG Plant In Algeria
August 2021

Movement and lifts in a live petrochemical site with space constraint involves meticulous planning and Sarens is a reference in the heavy lift and specialised transport for the Oil & Gas and Petrochemical sector.

Sarens was asked by our client Renaissance for Airproduct to execute heavy lifts and installation of refinery equipment at the LNG plant in Arzew, Algeria.

Sarens had to lift the Coldbox, lox tank, lin tanks, and other equipment. The most important component was the 47m long cold box weighing 150T. The team decided to deploy:

  • CC2800-1 with SSL 72m main boom length
    The main crane was selected keeping in mind the length of the 47m long cold box which was the most critical section to be lifted. The equipment was transported from Sarens yard in Algeria and was assembled in 4 days.

The heavy lifts are part of the revamp of the LNG plant built in the 1970s. This project will help reduce maintenance costs, reduce gas consumption rates, and maintain LNG gas production at the GL1Z plant.
