Project Description

BASF’s chemicals and precious metals manufacturing facility in Seneca, South Carolina, received a cooling tower upgrade as part of a larger scope of work performed by excel group.

The team navigated tightly restricted workspaces to disconnect and reconnect motors, demolish conduit, dismantle and move the retired cooling tower, and eventually install the new tower. 
The most significant threat to the project schedule included design specifications conflicting with the realities of the supply chain and material availability. Teams cross-collaborated with engineers to troubleshoot solutions to bring the project to a quality and safe completion.
Excel completed this portion of the project under budget, two weeks in advance of the deadline, with zero safety incidents.
