We Energies has contracted Burns & McDonnell to provide engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for two LNG peaking facilities in southeastern Wisconsin, near Ixonia and Bluff Creek.
Burns & McDonnell said in a statement it would collaborate with We Energies to provide technical specification, evaluations and negotiation support for the LNG equipment and LNG tanks.
Each facility will include natural gas pretreatment, liquefaction, an LNG storage tank and vaporization.
Also, Burns & McDonnell will help with permitting, siting and detailed design for balance-of-plant systems.
Corresponding procurement will also be led by Burns & McDonnell and will include boil-off gas and pretreatment tail gas compressors, air compressors, and fire protection systems.
The procurement includes electrical systems, the plant control system, the emergency generator, structural steel, and building enclosures, the firm said.
Kansas City-based Burns & McDonnell did not provide financial details of the contract.
As previously reported by LNG Prime, McDermott’s unit CB&I would provide the design and construction of the LNG tank at each site. Both of the facilities will have the capacity to store twelve million gallons of LNG
McDermott expects mechanical completion of the project in the fall of 2023—in advance of the winter peak heating season.
Design and fabrication of the processing equipment for pretreatment and liquefaction would come from Cosmodyne, which also would provide the LNG vaporizers and truck loading/unloading skids, Burns & McDonnell said.
