About the project

Pala tackled a job with a unique approach.  Aalborg Industries contracted Pala for the construction of two waste heat boiler modules for the ExxonMobile refinery in Chalmmette.  The nearly 500,000 lb modules could not be constructed on site; they were erected at a nearby facility and transported on self-leveling crawlers to be lifted and erected into place.  Pala leased property adjacent to the refinery and built a fabrication facility over 55 feet high to house the modules during construction.
