Shell has enlisted the help of the Singapore office and workshops of Rotork to assist in its recovery efforts after a fire at its Pulau Bukom manufacturing site.
The fire broke out in a pump house in late September, taking almost two days to put out. The Pulau Bukom site is Shell's largest refinery, with a capacity of 500,000 barrels a day.
Rotork's specialist Site Services department in Singapore is now working to assist in repairing the damage, by initially helping Shell to actuate new valves for the most urgent repairs.
Rotork electric actuators installed in unaffected areas of the site are also being removed and shipped to the workshop for fitting to new critical plant replacement valves, while Rotork engineers assist with the on-site installation and commissioning of these actuated valves.
New Rotork IQPro intelligent electric actuators have been ordered for new valves to be installed at the site, with many fitted to the valves at Rotork's Singapore workshop and delivered as complete factory tested motorised packages to site, where Rotork engineers will provide installation and commissioning services.
