SABIC is a plastic fabrication company located in Selkirk, NY. SABIC operates through 3 strategic business units, which include petrochemicals, agri-nutrients, and specialties, and one standalone organization, which is metals.
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. RAN was also involved in the design/build process.
