Greenland – SAW Joint Venture Selected for Utah Boiler Plant Project

By | Company News

A Joint Venture between Greenland Enterprises and SAW Contracting has been selected for an $80.9M design-build contract to retrofit a district heating facility at Hill Air Force Base in Davis County, Utah.

The project will include replacing eight existing boilers with five new ultra-low NOx 50MMBH boilers. The project requires phasing the boiler replacement within the existing plant to maintain steam production for operating requirements. In addition to the boilers, the Greenland and SAW Joint Venture team will remove existing underground fuel storage tanks and replace them with aboveground tanks sized to handle peak demand for seven consecutive days.

The project scope also includes seismic retrofitting and all boiler support equipment.

The joint venture will have 30 months to complete design and construction.

Project Milestone: Steam Generation Assets Rigged into Place

By | Boiler Plant Construction, Company News, Project Milestone

Two new high-efficiency packaged boilers were recently set at a Nebraska-based healthcare facility. Greenland is retrofitting the existing district heating plant with new boilers, controls and piping infrastructure.

Our crews removed the windows on the historical boiler plant building to facilitate rigging and setting the new boilers in place. In lieu of replacing the windows, Greenland offered the facility a “betterment” to install a new coiling door. The new door will allow for easier maintenance and access into the building in the future.

The project is a joint venture between Greenland Enterprises, Inc. and SAW Contracting, Inc. The team anticipates firing the new boilers and completing the commissioning and turnover process in the fourth quarter of 2020.

If you are considering a district energy project, no matter what size or complexity, be sure to get the Greenland experience and expertise on your side. Contact us today to start the conversation.
