CLIENT: Lotte Chemical Company
OWNER: LACC; Lotte – Westlake
PROJECT MANAGER: Josh Crawford
LOCATION: Lake Charles, LA
Lotte Chemical and Westlake Chemical have invested over $3 billion USD in this 1 million TPY Ethane cracker and specialty chemical complex near Lake Charles, LA. SMW Projects, Inc. was initially contracted to provide construction of all OSBL facilities including pipelines under a pristine bayou and across environmentally sensitive marshlands. When a critical need arose, SMWP was asked to step in to complete construction of the complex and provide Commissioning and Startup services. With the broad capabilities and responsiveness demonstrated by SMWP under demanding circumstances Lotte had the confidence to award the current Maintenance Services contract for this world class complex to SMWP.
SMWP has provided heavy Civil/Structural, Piping, Mechanical, I&E and Heat Trace services at the LACC complex.
SMW Projects, Inc. has managed a workforce of over 250 craft personnel and is providing specialist personnel to perform Pre-Commissioning and Commissioning to complete the project and assist in startup.
SMW Projects has worked over 180,000 manhours on this project without any recordable safety incidents and with a high level of customer satisfaction.
