Turbosonic praises Local 92 for scrubber work

I RECENTLY did a job in Wilmington, Calif., at Conoco Phillips installing a wet scrubber system. Nooter Construction was the contractor.

Throughout the years, unions have left a bad taste in my mouth, but dealing with these Boilermakers I found a new appreciation for the professionalism these guys have, especially Alvin Manning, Patrick Talburt, Santiago Ramirez, Jose Huizar, Margarito Ibarra, Angel Ruiz, and Herman Alfaro [all members of Local 92, Los Angeles].

I told these men the importance of final alignment for the critical components. Not only did I never have to tell them again, but the quality was far beyond any job I have ever been on in my 15 years of experience.

I hope to be able to work with these craftsmen again on future projects.

MC Mechanical Corp. congratulates L-667

ON BEHALF OF the MC Mechanical Corp. (a subsidiary of Minnotte Contracting), I would like to congratulate you, your staff, and members of Local 667 (Charleston, W.Va.) on an outstanding spring outage at the Allegheny Energy Fort Martin Power Station. The outage included waterwall and mix pass panel replacement, a complete lower slope replacement, and extensive boiler and duct work stiffening for a balanced draft conversion.

At peak, we employed about 450 Boilermakers on this very congested work site. The project was completed on budget — and most importantly — with zero serious injuries. Due to the tremendous efforts of the field leadership from your local, our customer was able to resume power generation earlier than anticipated.

Thank you for your support this spring, and we look forward to continuing our work with Local 667.
