Doe Run Peru
La Oroya, Peru
Inspection of a 550' × 60' Ø Reinforced Concrete Smelter Chimney
Working in conjunction with Doe Run Peru and Fluor Daniel, CCI and Gibraltar Chimney performed an inspection of the massive structure.
The isolated mountain village of La Oroya, located at 13,000 ft. above sea level, had neither the expertise nor personnel to complete the inspection during the two-day outage.
Gibraltar Chimney was brought in as a specialist, to supervise and work with the local workforce from La Oroya. The experience of Gibraltar personnel working internationally was invaluable in getting the two teams to work in consort. Combining this, with GCI's chimney expertise, enabled the two teams to complete the inspection safely and ahead of schedule.
