Modular Construction Advantages


Modular Equipment

Chemex is a leading global source for modular refineries, gas processing plants and measurement systems. At Chemex, we match clients’ project needs with manufactured modular equipment and engineering design services. When compared to conventionally built refineries, modular systems entail advantages, including lower cost, shortened time schedules and flexible operations in remote geographic areas. By performing most or all of the fabrication and assembly at a Chemex manufacturing facility, equipment is manufactured in a controlled working environment allows that Chemex to produce the highest quality as efficiently as possible.

Modularization avoids inclement weather delays at the site and reduces cost since higher cost site work is replaced by lower cost shop work. It reduces the need to maintain a skilled construction crew on or near the project site. Fabricating modular processing units away from the facility site may also reduce construction impact at the site. Lay-down space, an important consideration when the site is small or congested, is minimized.

In addition, aerial work is minimized and foundation requirements are often simplified. Pre-fitting components onto a module permits tighter quality control prior to shipment to a client’s location, leading to less re-work on-site. Costs are reduced further when the installation site is located where raw materials and equipment are expensive or difficult to obtain. Removing the need for highly skilled labor on site may yield additional advantage in areas where skilled labor is either costly or unavailable.
In summary, Chemex design and construction leads to a better business case with lower cost and predictable results.
