Consulting for MPM Texas City Facility
Texas City, TX
RAN Fire Protection Engineering has a long-standing relationship with Momentive Performance Materials. In addition to Momentive facilities in the Northeast and Internationally, RAN provided a variety of services at their Texas City facility. This project excluded our previous services with Momentive of consulting with Momentive, designing systems, developing construction documents, and creating schematic layouts. To begin our work at this facility, RAN performed a facility evaluation for the existing fire protection systems. This involved reviewing all pertinent documentation of the fire protection systems in the facility, reviewing procedures, developing a needed fire flow for the existing conditions of the fire protection systems, and providing a report and provide recommendations. RAN also supported Momentive in assessment of risks caused by non-conforming conditions in fire detection, suppression, and control systems. RAN also provided an evaluation of the Insurance Company’s recommended upgrades, supporting Momentive in preparing and reviewing documentation for submission to the insurance company, and identification of any ancillary facility infrastructure upgrades.
Client: CHA Technical Services
RAN provided special hazard consulting services for a performance-based design for the Resin structure at Sabic. The scope of services for this project involved the development of performance criteria for the 4 existing deluge systems and the design of 2 new deluge systems for protection against flammable liquid fires within the structure. Fire modeling was required to identify the worst-case pool fire, including the prediction of deluge system activation. RAN was able to establish the fire suppression requirements which included a code analysis, hydraulic calculations, and the establishment of acceptance criteria for the performance-based design.
