Fives supplies cold boxes for the South Korean petrochemical industry
Containing an intricate assembly of brazed aluminium heat exchangers for an ethylene recovery unit, the cold box, weighing 122 tons, was first shipped by road from Fives' workshops in Golbey - France, towards the river port of Strasbourg, on a 16-axle trailer. No less than two tractors were needed to handle the 245-ton convoy.
Despite difficult weather conditions, the cold box arrived in Strasbourg on January 19th after a ten-day road journey, and was loaded onto a barge to Antwerp for final shipment towards South Korea.
