    Case Studies

    William Grant & Sons

    For William Grant & Sons we replaced a 12-ton heat exchanger with a 17-ton upgrade at the company’s Girvan distillery. The project involved working within a time critical window that involved switching off the plant for a maximum of just 18 hours over a weekend.

    The AIS Vanguard team arrived on site at 7am on the Friday morning to prepare for the lift the following day. The plant was switched off when the team arrived on site at 7am on the Saturday. All works to remove the old heat exchanger, lift the new one into place and install it were completed by the AIS Vanguard Glasgow team by 16:00 hours on Saturday afternoon. The plant could then be switched back on ahead of schedule, with a shutdown period of just nine hours.
