McDermott’s CB&I nets Wisconsin LNG storage tank gig

McDermott’s unit CB&I has secured a contract from We Energies to design and build two LNG storage tanks for peak shaving facilities in southeastern Wisconsin.

Both facilities, slated for construction in Bluff Creek and Ixonia, Wisconsin, would each have the capacity to store twelve million gallons of LNG, Houston-based McDermott said.

Also, they would have an above-ground water storage tank for fire protection, it said.

McDermott expects mechanical completion of the project in the fall of 2023—in advance of the winter peak heating season.

The firm did not reveal the price tag of the contract.

“Demand for natural gas fluctuates daily and seasonally,” said Cesar Canals, senior VP of CB&I. “By storing LNG when demand is low, energy companies can ensure adequate supply when demand is at its peak—which are normally the coldest days of winter in Wisconsin,” he said.
