In order to reduce their dependence on steam from neighboring Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, a specialty chemicals plant, through Williams Construction & Project Management, Inc., retained R.E. Warner to prepare preliminary and conceptual engineering for development of a new boiler plant.
The new facility will be fueled by natural gas and will include a back-up emergency generator, equipment crane or monorail and new water source. The boilers will be either a steam generator type or “Ohio Special” steam boiler to eliminate the need for a full-time stationary operation. Preliminary engineering will include a site location study, plant layout, equipment sizing, utility requirements and statement of probable construction costs.
