Overview

The Syngenta MMU project required a new reactor structure and development of corresponding steel, piping and equipment. BCI completed the project ahead of schedule, resulting in multiple millions of value-added revenue to client.

Six Sigma Drives Our Success

 

As one of the “Big 6” Biotech Corporations, Syngenta leads the way in securing our food source across the globe to control pests, rodents, mosquitoes, and other bugs. Their St Gabriel, LA reactor provides extraordinary flexibility in kinds of products it produces, and is required to scale in order to meet seasonal and volume demands.
The $7.5 MM project, which included construction of a reactor structure and development of corresponding steel, piping and equipment, was awarded to and completed by BCI in 2016, with a five-month delivery schedule.
BCI used a Six Sigma project approach to create pathways to success for this large scale project. We analyzed and exhausted all potential risk scenarios within the project scope, and developed comprehensive plans to avoid downtime.

As a result, the reactor was delivered on time, in budget and according to specification. Not only were all Syngenta QA/QC specifications met or exceeded, but the reactor was commissioned ahead of schedule. One product, valued at $1.5 MM per day, was produced 13 days ahead of schedule. Another, valued at $3 MM per day, was produced 6 days ahead of schedule.
