In a retractable flare, one flare stack can be lowered while the others remain in operation. This enables maintenance activities to be performed at ground level without needing to decrease the flare capacity too drastically.
Because of the weight and size of such retractable flare risers, an experienced crew is required to perform this lifting service.
Besides that, local circumstances and the condition of the flare can require adjustments throughout the project. Conbit has experienced many unforeseen circumstances in their projects and will be able to adapt to changing situations.
The project was executed safe and on time, and was a great team effort with CR Asia.
