Modular and off site construction of medium sized chemical plants is an interesting approach, which will increase safety at site and less disturbance for operations. Parallel construction of site works (foundation and infrastructure) and the process modules is decreasing the overall construction schedule resulting in a shorter time to market. Thorough preperation of design and transportation is also eliminating risks, resulting in good predictability of project cost and schedule.
