Project Description

EXCEL personnel arrived in Savannah, Georgia, to assist IHI E&C International Corporation (IHI E&C) with completing Phase One of the Elba Island Liquefaction Project. Owned by Kinder Morgan and engineered and managed by IHI E&C, Phase One of the site expansion was designed to include six Movable Modular Liquefaction System (MMLS) trains, providing a daily capacity of 210 MMcf of liquefied natural gas (LNG). This project also required modifications to the existing docks and tanks to increase the exporting capabilities. Throughout the project, EXCEL assisted both Kinder Morgan and IHI E&C in overcoming several logistical demands, design issues, and unique obstacles. Implementing EXCEL's value engineering, project controls programs, quality control procedures, effective site management, and safety programs significantly increased safe and productive work throughout the site. By the completion of the project, EXCEL was not only the largest contractor on site but also had the best safety record among all contractors.
