Chemical Manufacturing – Solstice HFO-1234zd Project – Phase 1
Scope: Early FEL planning for construction of a new process for the manufacture of a Low Global Warming Potential product used in the production of a near “drop-in” replacement of HFC-245fa refrigerant.
Duration: 24 Months
Highlights: FEL planning, scheduling, analysis of trending similar projects globally and development of a robust plan of execution for engineering design and construction.
Mitigations/Successes: Successfully developed analyses to support recommendations for senior stakeholders to place a hold on the project instead of continuing to expend capital resources. A second analysis was performed on alternatives culminating in a similar recommendation.
