According to the statement, Energy utilities are considered critical infrastructure by the US Department of Homeland Security, and these projects have already commenced.
NV5 claims that it was awarded a US$6 million engineering procurement and construction (EPC) contract for an LNG facility vaporisation system expansion. This expansion will increase production capacity and improve reliability by adding redundancy. Design has already begun on the new system, and it is expected that the project will be completed later this year.
In addition to this, the company was also awarded a US$2 million EPCM contract for the second phase of an LNG facility boil-off compressor project. Design work on phase 2 will start immediately so that field construction can follow the completion of phase 1, which is currently being performed by NV5, and allow the project to be completed by the end of 2020.
Dickerson Wright, PE, Chairman and CEO of NV5, said: “Many of the projects that we design and support are considered critical infrastructure by the Department of Homeland Security guidelines related to essential services, including energy, transportation, water, and wastewater projects.
“The safety of our employees is our top priority, and while most of our engineers are working remotely, we have implemented social distancing and hygiene practices to protect our field and shop personnel.”
Peter Dirksen, PE, President of CHI Engineering Services, an NV5 company, added: “These projects represent the continuation of very successful, collaborative client relationships and are a testament to NV5’s extensive experience and expertise in the design and construction of LNG systems for our utility clients.”
