Client: SPX Cooling Technologies/PCS Nitrogen
Location: Lima, OH
Project: Cooling Tower Demolition
Year: 2015 Duration: 1 month
SPX Cooling Technologies was contracted by PCS Nitrogen to replace their existing 6 cell cooling tower at their facility in Lima, OH. SPX Cooling Technologies subcontracted with Hayden Wrecking Corporation to perform the demolition of the existing cooling tower during a plant shutdown. The project schedule allowed 5 days for demolition and cleanup. New piping was installed along the length of existing cooling tower prior to demolition which therefore allowed access on only one end of the existing cooling tower to perform the demolition and cleanup. Hayden Wrecking utilized an Ultra High Demolition Excavator equipment with a rotating sorting grapple to demolish the cooling tower. A standard configured excavator equipped with a rotating sorting grapple was used to load out all debris generated from the demolition operations.
