The Nov.-Dec. issue of World Cogeneration reports that Westinghouse Electric received a $15 million contract to provide full-scope operation and maintenance to the Bellingham Carbon Dioxide Recovery facility in Bellingham, MA. They also provide O&M services to the three-hundred megawatt co-generation plant next door. Piping Technology fabricated the large ducts which connect the two facilities when Fluor Daniel did the original construction.
The Dec. 11, 1995 issue of ENR has an article (and pictures) about the 240 MW co-generation plant in Crockett, CA built by Bechtel Power. This was the first project that Piping Technology supplied to Bechtel under their new MPA agreement with selected vendors. The article explains the unique problems associated with building a facility this large on their 2.6 acre site and the necessity to add penalty clauses to all supplier contracts to help meet their schedule. For pipe supports they also added extra crating requirements to minimize the chance of damage during shipment which might delay construction. Bechtel was pleased with PT&P’s performance on this challenging project.
