Project Scope:

Toledo Port Authority built this new facility for Midwest Terminals.

Project was started as a maintenance facility for train cars and engines, as the end user does rail work for CSX and other carriers.

Build a 15,000 SF pre-engineered maintenance facility, with capabilities of adding an overhead crane.  Project included an office area overlooking the maintenance bay, bathroom facilities, and an electrical/mechanical room.

Challenges:

Project was constructed on an old refinery site.  Almost all foundation excavations encountered previously buried foundations, which needed to be hammered out.  Also, this was constructed during the winter of 2013-14, which was one of the coldest and snowiest in NWO history.

Project Scope:

Fenner Dunlop is the world’s leader in the field of conveyor belting, manufacturing the most comprehensive range of conveyor systems for many industries and applications.

IPS was contracted to provide setting, aligning, and installation services for five (5) process equipment lines: calendar line; steel cord press line; fabric belt press line; inspection line; and laminating line. Scope of work include process piping, process electrical, and equipment installation.

The preplanning for the equipment moves began while the building was being erected. Provisions had to be made for the process piping runs to be integrated within the building and the process electrical runs that had to be embedded within the concrete. Additionally, alignment plates were strategically placed in order to ensure that each individual process line was precisely installed to meet the required tolerances.

IPS was also responsible for the installation of all electrical work in the new building to support the expansion. Planning and pre-work was completed prior to the substation retrofit, which took place during a 72-hour shutdown over Thanksgiving. IPS worked around-the-clock to ensure the substation was available to the customer a full day earlier than required.
