Marathon Petroleum MCC Upgrade – Charlotte East Terminal // September 2015
MJW has recently been awarded the Electrical Service Upgrade project for Marathon Petroleum in Charlotte, North Carolina. The project’s goal is to consolidate multiple electrical services that currently feed the terminal into a single 5K Volt 2,000 amp service, requiring extensive electrical, civil and structural scopes.
The civil and structural scopes of work include trenching and encasement of the new primary service conduit into a concrete duct bank, fabrication and installation of 96 new conduit and cable tray supports and their foundations, providing foundations for the new MCC Building, Transformer and Switchgear and setting those in place.
The electrical scope of the work includes installation of over 1/4 mile of 6” primary service underground conduit into the new MCC Building, over 1 mile of new cable trays and conduits, and 90,000 feet of new wiring from the MCC to the existing sub panels, motors, controllers, and other users throughout the terminal. In addition to the power, we are also installing all new Network and PLC systems which include fiber-optic wiring and remote I/Os.
Working multiple craft crews in an active oil terminal requires extensive coordination between MJW and Marathon Petroleum. Upon successful completion, this complex electrical project will add to MJW’s showcase of self-performed, full service, one-stop-shop contracts our clients have come to expect. It is our mission to continuously deliver maximum value to our clients.
