Electrical and Fire Protection Project for SiVance - Gainesville Florida // June 2016

MJW Consolidated has successfully completed an expansion project for Milliken Chemical’s SiVance facility in Gainesville Florida. All three MJW companies participated in the project, serving as a specialty EPC resource to SiVance for a “Turn-Key” solution to the complex and time sensitive project.

MJW Engineering provided design of the fire protection, fire alarm and detection, and related buildings within a compressed scheduled and at a level of quality to allow for accurate and expedited procurement of materials and components.                                     


The electrical work included installation of a motor control center, motors, instruments, lighting, Profibus and DCS cabling, and power and control wiring all with related stainless steel cable tray, NEMA enclosures and PVC coated conduit throughout the multi-level structure with classified areas. 


Fire alarm and detection work included installation of an addressable fire alarm control panel, sophisticated fire protection system actuation controls, smoke detection devices, linear heat detection cable, and notification devices throughout the multi-level structure with classified areas. 


Fire protection systems included installation of a new diesel engine driven fire pump, underground firewater distribution piping systems, low expansion foam systems for the multi-level structure, and an automatic dry standpipe system. Piping systems were of corrosion resistant alloys and fabricated in our Titusville/Kennedy Space Center location.

The work also required the construction of the new Fire Pump Building and new Foam Valve House Building and included earthwork, concrete, and steel and building erection.

The entire scope of work was performed in-house, on time and within the budget.


Kinder Morgan Liquefaction Project // June 2016

Kinder Morgan, Inc. and IHI E&C jointly announced in April that Kinder Morgan subsidiaries, Elba Liquefaction Company, L.L.C. and Southern LNG Company, L.L.C. had awarded IHI E&C a contract for the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and startup of Kinder Morgan’s natural gas liquefaction project at Elba Island, near Savannah, Georgia.


On May 25th, IHI E&C awarded the subcontract to provide fire protection installation and other services for the Kinder Morgan Elba Island Liquefaction Project to Milton J. Wood Fire Protection.  MJW Consolidated’s scope of work consists of procurement and installation of over 25,000 linear feet of 6” thru 16” HDPE underground fire mains, 120 post indicator valves, 160 underground service valves, 38 new fire hydrants, 120 fire water monitors of which 105 will be remotely operated. 


The approximately $2 billion Elba Liquefaction Project will consist of 10 Movable Modular Liquefaction System (MMLS) trains using Shell proprietary technology. The new units will connect to Kinder Morgan’s existing re-gasification terminal at Elba Island, which will be modified to receive liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the new liquefaction facilities. Modifications to the existing Elba facilities will include compression for vapor handling and new pumps for loading the LNG on vessels for export. Shell is the customer for 100 percent of the liquefaction capacity and ship-loading services being developed by the project. When completed, the Elba Liquefaction Project will process and liquefy a total capacity of approximately 2.5 million tonnes per annum of LNG.

Milton J. Wood Fire Protection and Milton J. Wood Company jointly completed a total fire protection replacement project at this same location in 2002 and have since completed multiple expansion projects, upgrades, testing and maintenance projects.
