Petrochemical Structures​

iEE has extensive expertise in the design, detailing, and review of various projects in the petrochemical industry in Québec and Canada, including:

  • Concrete foundations (shallow and deep) for heavy industrial structures and equipment;

  • Structural supporting systems for Silos (superstructure, pile cap, piles, caissons);

  • Foundation system (on grade, ring wall) for large tanks (LNG, asphalt, chemicals, petrochemicals, etc.);

  • Retrofit of existing structures (concrete, masonry and steel);

  • Table-top foundation for polyreactors, vapour tower, etc.;

  • Foundation for charge pumps, exchangers, filter platforms, valve stations, etc; 

  • Advanced finite element modeling of structures (dynamics, seismic, blast);

  • Design of blast resistant buildings in petrochemical facilities, for both new buildings and retrofit of existing ones.
