Precon Demolition/Replacement US Steel Great Lakes Works, B2 Blast Furnace Ecorse, Michigan

Project Description: 

During the U.S. Steel scheduled shotcrete outage for the B2 blast furnace, Songer Services completed demolition and replacement of a deficient Precon unit. We were responsible for demolition and replacement of the of the Precon and installed a new scrubber and ancillary maintenance towers. Songer Services self-performed all ironwork, boilermaker work, masonry work, and civil work associated with the project. Demolition, pipefitting, and electrical work was subcontracted.

Project Result: 

Due the fact the furnace would not start up at the completion of the outage, this project schedule was extended by the customer, and allowed Songer Services to come in under budget. The project was completed without any major incidents or injuries.
