Project Scope:

Spartan Steel Coating is a joint venture between Severstal North America and Worthington Industries. Located in Monroe, Michigan, Spartan Steel Coating Company is capable of producing 450,000 tons annually of light gauge hot-dipped galvanized steel, primarily for value-added automotive applications.

IPS was the General Contractor for the construction of the Cooling Water Plant and Furnace Upgrade at the facility. IPS was responsible for all civil, structural, architectural, electrical, plumbing, process piping, HVAC, and controls for the cooling water plant. For efficiency modification of an existing hot dip coating line, IPS self-performed white iron erection, piping, electrical, controls, equipment setting, and installation of large ductwork.

Challenges:

The facility needed to remain fully operational throughout construction. IPS worked with plant engineers to schedule each phase of the project and help ensure there were no interruptions to production.

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.
