ConocoPhillips says Local 92 members “walk the talk”

AS THE FCC Particulate Project [Wilmington, Calif.] wraps up, I would like to comment on the outstanding participation by our team members of Boilermakers Local 92 [Los Angeles]. Without their commitment, our project would not have been a success.

Boilermakers Local 92 [demonstrated] the belief that safety is number one. They walk the talk. They truly believe in our project motto, “Safety Takes Every Person.”

They continually strived for improvements to reduce costs and offered their vast experience to improve quality and minimize delays in our schedule. They were professional in their interaction with other crafts and team members on the project and were always willing to support and assist others for the common goal of safely, bringing the project in on time and on budget.

Please convey to your members our appreciation and thanks.

JEA commends L-199, Sterling Boiler

I recently had the pleasure of using your company to make repairs to J.E.A.’s Northside Generating Unit 2 Spray Drier Absorber. Your selected project management team of Ricky Pearson, Danny Felker, Jim Anderson, Ronnie Ford [L-199, Jacksonville, Fla.], and Ronnie Thrift [L-199] performed their duties with the utmost professionalism.

This project presented us with several unique challenges that were met head on and resolved with minimal lost production. Your management’s dedication and the craftsmen’s exemplary performance resulted in a reduction of three days off your original proposed schedule, which in turn reduced our lost generation capacity.

Working with Sterling Boiler proved to be one of my best construction experiences. I would like to once again commend Sterling Boiler, and the men and women [of Local 199], who made our project a safe and successful endeavor.
