MJW TO WORK WITH AIR LIQUIDE ON NITROGEN LAUNCH SUPPORT SYSTEM AT CAPE CANAVERAL
Cryogenic developer Air Liquide has contracted with MJW to replace the existing nitrogen launch support system valve yard at NASA’s Launch Complex 39 at Cape Canaveral in Florida. This system is utilized to provide an inert nitrogen gas blanket and maintain a stable environment for essential systems during launch activities.
The ongoing work takes the LC39 area from being shuttle-dedicated to expanding its capabilities to better support the growing multi-users Space Port (SLS, Falcon 9, Falcon Heavy and eventually SpaceX’s Starship).
MJW’s scope of work will include 3D coordination, shop fabrication and field installation associated with the high pressure, high-flow control and flow metering system within a highly sequenced delivery and outage schedule that is coordinated to align with NASA/Space X’s launch schedule. This project marks another milestone in a long-standing partnership between MJW and Air Liquide as well as other partners at Cape Canaveral.
