Increasing demand for gas in areas served by an obsolete pipeline prompted Consumers Energy to engage SSOE’s engineering and procurement services to upgrade and replace the line. The project included developing multiple iterations of the routing plan to avoid recreational areas. SSOE assisted in obtaining permits from the township and various other agencies. The approved route added two miles to the line making the 24 inch pipe 11 miles in length. SSOE also designed a temporary bypass to maintain gas service while the 2.5-year project was completed.
When a power client needed to meet increased market demand for gas distribution, SSOE Group was secured to assist with the replacement of its compressor station. With vast knowledge of major pipeline equipment, specifically turbines, and how they perform, the firm proved integral to the success of the project. The client relied on SSOE’s mechanical and electrical expertise for the project.
