MJW’s Work with Trane Corp at NASJAX Completes Ahead of Schedule and Under Budget
In mid-November 2022, MJW embarked on a project for the Trane Corporation involving the removal and replacement of two cooling towers, four pumps and one chiller at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Florida.
By the end of December, the chiller and two of the four new pumps were installed and ready for tie-in. A four-day outage was scheduled in early January to tie-in and put the new pumps and chiller into service. The outage was completed ahead of schedule in 36 hours, allowing the customer to return to full service.
Immediately after the successful chiller and pump outage, the old cooling tower was removed and replaced with the new cooling tower. After the first new cooling tower was placed in service and fully operational MJW team removed and replaced the second cooling tower. All equipment and piping replacement was completed by the end of February. MJW’s subcontractor, Commercial Insulation Company, installed high quality FoamGlas insulation with long term thermal performance and protection on the completed chilled water piping system.
The entire project was completed and MJW de-mobilized offsite at the end of February, completing the project four months ahead of schedule. Both the U.S. Navy and Trane Corporation expressed praise for the organized planning, coordination, speed and quality of work delivered by MJW carpenter and pipefitter craft and supervisors involved in the project.
This project is one in a series of ongoing MJW projects for the U.S. Navy and the Trane Corporation at NAS JAX as well as Kings Bay Naval Base in Kingsland, Georgia. MJW looks forward to continuing the strong partnership going forward.
