Structure Integrity Assessment of a Cocoa Liquor Plant in Ghana

Anthony Simons, C. Addy


In view of a projected re-opening of the liquor facility plant, a group of factory inspectors were assigned to carry out a technical audit on the  equipment at the plant. The prime focus of the audit was to ascertain the prevailing technical state of the plant and make informed decision as to the type of maintenance required to make the system fully functional. Technical observations proved that most of the equipment are in good shape, however, some minor repair works were required to make them fully functional.
