MBP became involved in the project on behalf of the owner during the reconstruction of the digester area of the Gramercy Alumina Refinery after it was destroyed in a catastrophic explosion involving high-pressure piping and pressure vessels. MBP provided on-site inspection, CPM scheduling, cost to complete estimates, analysis of the actual costs of performance, expert reports, and litigation support. The project involved the reconstruction of the digester area, which included foundation piling, structural concrete, steel framed structural supports and pipe racks, installation of fabricated pressure vessels, installation of specialty alloy high pressure piping, electrical power substation, process instrumentation and controls, testing, and start-up. The project involved an industrial plant complex that is mid-way between Baton Rouge and New Orleans along the Mississippi River.
