Fully packaged fired heaters can be supplied to customer specifications, including:

Unusually, the contract for the two fired heaters for the Ormen Lange project, although oversize for normal shipping, was contracted for total build prior to delivery. We understand these units were the largest fully assembled fired heaters transported in this fully assembled state worldwide. This gave the client immense cost saving at site. CF Struthers could undertake this, due to our proximity to Hull Dock for direct shipping to Norway site. This meant site install was completed in a matter of 3 days including the air pre-heaters, which were also part of the contract.
Shipping dimensions of these giant heaters were 12m x 9m x 40m long, 410te each.
