Hexion Chemical Plant- Melbourne
FESQ’s Scope for the Chemical Plant was to replace the old fire foam with new F3 Foam. FESQ tool responsibility for engineering, supply , installation, commissioning and certification of the new foam system as outlined below:
Engineering review of the Old foam protection system and propose required changes to the system
Select and Supply alcohol resistance flour free foam in accordance to AS requirements for foam concentrate of the plant.
Supply and install a new 5000L fire foam tank in the existing location
Supply and install a shed on foam tank and reserve drums.
Flushing/cleaning the foam concentrate pipework to achieve the reduction in fluorine content as required by QLD DEHP policy
Adjusting the foam system components to compensate for the change in viscosity between AFFF (3.5 Cs) and new foam (5000 Cs) and deliver foam solution at the proportion required by AS and NFPA.
Transfer and dispose of 7000L foam concentrate from fire foam tank, 10 drums and two IBCs.
Certify the Foam protection system in terms of Fluorine free foam replacement and Fire protection performance
The project was delivered on time and on budget in November 2018.
