Distributed Generation The Benefits of Distributed Power Generation (DG) - For decades businesses were essentially at the mercy of utility plants and their transmission grids to receive crucial power for business operations. While for the most part this has proven to be okay, it nevertheless left companies with no control over price increases and subject to devastating shortfalls if there was a power disruption. In recent years, however, all of that is changing and companies are gaining much greater power autonomy. The reason for these advancements: Distributed power generation. What Is Distributed Power Generation? In a conventional power model, energy is generated in massive quantities at a large-scale power plant […]
combined-heat-power What Are Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Systems? - Just about all industrial facilities, plants, mills, and manufacturing facilities have a few things in common. First, they all want to find ways to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Second, they require a large amount of power to run. Third, they very likely also require a great deal of heat energy for various industrial processes and heating. Fortunately, there is a solution to meet all of these needs while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollution: Combined Heat and Power Systems. What Are Combined Heat and Power Systems? Combined heat and power systems, also known simply as CHP systems,or sometimes […]
Fabrication Shop How Fabrication Facilities Are Evaluated For Quality Control - Choosing the best fabrication facility for a project is one of the most important decisions that you can make since it will have a direct impact on the safety, cost, production timeline, and quality of your equipment or materials. In order to make an informed decision about which fabrication facility to use it is crucial to understand some of the key ways in which fabrication facilities can be evaluated. ASME Certification ASME, or the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, is an organization that was first founded in 1880 by a group of leading engineers who were alarmed at the high […]

PROJECTS

  • Vac Unit Additions

    Problem With crude feed slates becoming heavier over time, the client’s capabilities of recovering diesel and atmospheric gas oil became limited with the existing Atmospheric Crude Distillation Towers. As a result they were not able to recover a small portion of diesel and large portion of Atmospheric Gas Oil from the Atmospheric Tower Bottoms (ATB). Thus, these products were downgraded to No. 6 Oil. Solution Polaris proposed the design of a Vacuum Distillation Tower that would not only recover the Diesel Cut and Atmospheric Gas Oil, but also increase Gas Oil yields further to meet Low Sulfur Vacuum Gas Oil […]

  • ULSD Compliance Project

    Problem To comply with the EPA mandated low sulfur standard for highway diesel, refiners are now required to meet a 15 ppmw sulfur specification on diesel sold into this market. To produce ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD), high severity diesel hydrotreating technologies are required. These processes require a significant supply of hydrogen. In order to enter into the ULSD market, the client would need not only a process unit capable of producing ULSD specifications, but also an economical hydrogen source to supply the unit. Solution Polaris proposed a plant expansion design that would give the refiner ULSD production capability and […]

  • Refinery Refurbishment

    Problem A small Gulf Coast refinery had been dormant for over 4 years. The infrastructure, as well as the main processing units, had fallen into disrepair. The new ownership desired to run a different feedstock as well as different product slate than ever had been produced from the refinery. Solution Polaris Engineering provided designs for refurbishing the refinery as well as modifying the processing equipment to produce the new product slate. Polaris Construction provided fabrication, field services, and general contracting to perform the complete refurbishment of the plant. In seven months, the plant went from being dormant to producing on-spec […]

  • Refinery Emergency Design

    Problem A large Midwest refinery suffered a severe fire in the single crude unit that would render the crude unit out of service for nine months. The refinery called in Polaris Engineering to figure out how to run the plant without the crude unit. Solution Polaris Engineering evaluated the plant and provided a design to utilize existing equipment within the plant in completely new services to process crude. The design was completed in less than one week and passed through HAZOP and Corporate review without any modifications. The revamp cost $10MM and allowed the plant to operate at the designed […]
