Michigan Office awarded large project with Marathon Petroleum Company

Marathon Petroleum Company has awarded the Hatzel & Buehler Michigan Office with the electrical and instrumentation contract for their new liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) rail loading project. The project is located in their Melvindale Tank Farm. This will allow Marathon to meet the growing demand of their customers. This is a complex project and includes most of the major systems that are involved in an oil refinery project. The new power infrastructure will be a 5kV feed ran 1,200’ feet from the new MPS substation that Hatzel & Buehler installed in the summer of 2016. 480V and 120V power /control cables will then be distributed to motors and other devices via cable tray. This will all be controlled through a new instrument infrastructure system along with SIS instruments. Additionally the project will consist of heat trace, a new compressor building, lighting, H2S/LEL detectors and emergency shut down systems.
