PT&P has a contract to provide the fabricated pipe supports and the cold shoes on a power plant in Puerto Rico. Imported liquid natural gas will be the primary fuel for the plant. PT&P cold shoes will be important to support the piping from the LNG storage tanks to the power plant. PT&P has worked on power projects in Rhode Island and Beaumont, Texas. Currently, PT&P is working on power projects in China, Malaysia and various sites in the United States.
Basic Engineers Auction Yields Manufacturing Machinery
A supplier of pipe supports, Basic Engineers (BE) of Johnstown, PA decided to close its business in late 1997. In May 1998, the company held an auction to liquidate BE’s manufacturing equipment. PT&P acquired the majority of Basic Engineers’ assets, including its test equipment for snubbers. For additional information on snubbers, please refer to our Mobility Test article.
