RADFORD MUNITIONS PLANT

Radford Army Ammunitions Plant

Southern Virginia

Project Owner: US Army Corps of Engineers

Project Location: Radford Army Ammunitions Plant at Radford Virginia

Contract Amount: $1,722,000

Project Description: The WM Schlosser Co currently has a design build contract for providing a Thermal Oxidizer and appurtenances for the Nitric Acid/Sulfuric Acid (NAC/SAC) Concentrator at the Radford Army Ammunitions Plant at Radford Virginia.

The Project Manager is Chuck Cima and the Project Superintendent is Mark Gunter.

The Design Partner for the contract is STV Inc. of Douglasville Pennsylvania.

The NAC/SAC currently in operation was not meeting Virginia DEQ emissions standards so the US Army Corps of Engineers was tasked to seek Design/Build proposals to design and construct a complete system to bring the emissions of the plant into compliance.

The WM Schlosser/STV design build team was selected for a contract price of $1,722,000 and a challenging contract duration of 240 days for the complete design/build, commission and final DEQ acceptance process. Change orders increased the final value of the contract to $1,792,640 and the duration to 258 days.

The scope of the work included the design and construction of a new underground natural gas supply line to the site, installation of foundation and equipment pad for the oxidizer and procurement and installation of the oxidizer. Other work included installation of a structural steel support tower for the NAC/SAC emission product supply and exhaust stack, fabrication and installation of the stack, insulation of the stack and associated electrical and control work.

A complete HAZOP was conducted to analyze the safety of all processes of the system.

The mechanical work of installing the stainless steel stacks was self performed by WM Schlosser. Key subcontractors included Mastec for the installation of the underground gas line, HT Bowling for concrete and demolition work and New River Electric for the electric work.
The Oxidizer Manufacturer was Catalytic Products Inc. of Lake Zurich Illinois.

This contract is currently nearing successful completion and will be undergoing final testing during the month of May. Initial testing has shown the equipment to be working well within acceptable limits. Other work remaining is the asphalt patch for the underground gas supply line and final walk through and punch list.

The work is expected to be at final completion prior to the current final completion date of May 28, 2013.
