A colossal column

12 June 2013


Tiong Woon completed one of the largest heavy lift and haulage projects for a single column in Singapore. The Xylene splitter column, which was 108m tall, with a weight of 1,147t, was installed at Jurong Aromatics Corporation’s complex in Jurong Island, Singapore, using a 1,600t Terex CC 8800-1.

The roll-on/roll-of (RORO), haulage and lifting work was carried out on behalf of SK E&C, an international engineering, procurement and construction contractor. The works included the design and construction of a temporary RORO jetty on Jurong Island and temporary road works, and modification for the transportation from RORO jetty to the installation site.

Tiong Woon is also involved in transporting, lifting and installing 62 other pieces of equipment for the JAC project. Equipment deployed included a 600t Terex Demag CC2800-1, 300t Terex Demag CC1800, 280t IHI CCH2800 and a 64-axle arrangment of Goldhofer SPMTs.

The $2.4bn aromatics complex is expected to be completed in 2014.
