Case Study

Conoco Phillips Bayway Refinery Upgrade
3D laser Scanning
and Surveying Furnace modifications


URS- Washington Division


Bayway sits on the New York harbor and is the second largest refinery on the East Coast. The refinery processes crude oil to produce transportation fuels for distribution to East Coast customers. Of the three furnaces in the unit area, one was being demolished and replaced, and one was undergoing design changes to its upper section.

Meridian Associates assisted by providing traditional site survey coupled with 3D Laser Scanning technology to accurately capture the area's existing conditions. Survey data was pos-processed and used to support laser scan registration; final scan model was initially delivered in LASERGen, then later in Cyclone format.
