The coolers are replacing two of the original Chemetics coolers supplied in 1975 and one from another vendor supplied in 2008, when the plant was upgraded to double absorption. The contract was awarded after close cooperation with the client to custom design the coolers and the associated water piping to meet the present and future process and operational requirements of the plant.
