Green Bay Packaging began construction on a new paper mill to replace their existing 71-year-old facility. Not only will a new mill double Green Bay Packaging’s paper production capability, but it will have a profound impact on the environment by dramatically reducing emissions and wastewater.
An important step in this project was the switch from coal to a natural gas fired boiler. Green Bay Packaging & Miron Construction had confidence in Tweet/Garot’s ability to complete this work within a tight timeframe and with exceptional quality.
Tweet/Garot Mechanical was selected to provide and install over 15,000 linear feet of pipe, ranging from 1/2” to 24” for the boiler island. To successfully meet the four-month deadline, we employed over 50 pipefitters simultaneously throughout the project. In addition, all trades worked cohesively within confined worksite spaces, allowing the schedule to remain on track.
Upon completion of this boiler project, Green Bay Packaging turned off the coal-fired boilers and made the milestone switch to natural gas. Incredibly, this switch is estimated to reduce hazardous emissions by over 90 percent.
