Atlantic Constructors was selected as construction manager for this 400 TPD CO2 Plant adjacent to the AdvanSix Facility on Industrial Avenue in Hopewell, Virginia.

This plant was a five tank plant with three base plant process mega skids enclosed in a central building. The site was developed to provide for both rail and truck fill operations to serve regional and national demand. The tank farm distribution pump system and related piping was prefabricated and site assembled along with all distribution piping. There was approximately 10,000 LF of piping on this project.

Atlantic Constructors also provided prefabrication and assembly services relative to the modular CO2 Process Mega Skids that are central to compression, liquifaction and purification of the raw CO2 gas. The mega skids were generally 15′ x 16′ x 50′ long and weighed in excess of 50 tons each. Mechanical services including piping fabrication and installation, equipment setting, plumbing and HVAC were self-performed to control schedule.

Primary trades and services on site related to the process building, electrical and site development were subcontracted.
