Team Work = Success!!!!

We were tasked to execute this project during a 23 day outage which required detailed planning in a very short timeframe prior to mobilization. The result was a seamless execution by our skilled MJW team members made up of carpenters, millwrights, ironworkers, pipefitters and superintendents.
