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.

SAW-Greenland Joint Venture Successful in Boiler Plant Project Bid

By | Boiler Plant Construction, Boiler Plant Controls, Company News

A Joint Venture between Greenland Enterprises and SAW Contracting has been awarded a $16.5M project to replace three boilers at the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville, FL. The combination of each company’s experience and expertise ultimately created the best offering for the Department of Veterans Affairs in awarding this project.

The project involves building a new boiler plant and replacing three water tube boilers with three fire tube boilers, along with new controls and related systems. The boilers provide steam for the medical center campus, and a critical element of the project is keeping the existing boiler plant online during construction and commissioning. Once the new plant is online, the SAW-Greenland team will dismantle and remove the old boilers and related equipment.
