Aciers Richelieu was commissioned to completely fabricate the main reactor for the sulfur dioxide (SO2) recovery plant. This was an imposing job, where the unusual size of the part required overnight delivery with a specialized transport team, complete with police escort, as well as a team from Hydro-Québec to lift certain electrical wires for the passage of this immense part.
