Imperial Sugar Explosion and Fire
A massive explosion and ensuing fire destroyed much of the Imperial Sugar processing facility. Haag engineers were asked to evaluate the scope and cost of damage, monitor the repairs, and segregate upgrades and improvements.
A massive explosion and ensuing fire destroyed the entire packaging and bulk loading facilities as well as damaging the sugar refining, electrical power and steam facilities, and storage warehouses and bulk silos. Haag engineers were called in to evaluate the complete scope of damage to the facility. Then, we developed detailed cost figures for in-kind restoration of the facility. Finally, we monitored restoration work during the two-year work period to segregate all upgrades and improvements included with the actual costs. Haag engineers were involved in evaluating damage to structural, mechanical, electrical, and process equipment. Haag prepared detailed cost estimates for all phases of the work.
