SSOE has been selected to provide engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services to a chemical client for a $23.9 million expansion project at their manufacturing facility based upon our previous EPC project experience with the client and their strong ongoing relationship.

The client creates graphite electrodes to service the steel industry. The scope of this project includes the construction of building space and equipment foundations, and installation of a furnace, conveyors, and pressure vessels. SSOE’s Energy, Glass, Chemical, and Manufacturing (EGCM) SBU will work together with SSOE’s construction management division, to provide EPC services.

This is SSOE’s second EPC project with this client, the first a machining building expansion at their Midwest U.S. carbon electrode finishing facility. SSOE helped the client construct a new 30,000 SF space to allow for the integration of new process equipment to replace antiquated equipment in the existing plant. SSOE was able to complete this project, limiting cost impacts to the client in a challenging market.
