Project Scope:

Premcor, a Fortune 500 oil refinery group, selected IPS to serve as the General Contractor responsible for construction of the Cat Gas Hydro Treater at their Lima, Ohio facility. The facility is now owned by BP Husky.

IPS self-performed all piping and electrical services including installation of equipment and modules, towers, exchangers, heaters, civil and structural work.


Since the project was designed concurrent with construction, IPS was able to work closely with the design firm, CBI, Inc., to ensure that construction and design could proceed in a logical, timely, and cost-effective manner. The project schedule was maintained through a cooperative approach at the project team level with an eye toward solving problems in the field prior to their occurrence. However, when problems were identified in the field they were immediately attacked and solved.

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.
