Airgas – Air Conversion Plant (Carroll County, Kentucky)

In 2006, Airgas Merchant Gases, LLC was looking to expand their service area and construct a new air separation plant in the Carroll County, Kentucky. They finally decided on a site that was immediately adjacent to the Dow Corning Corporation’s silicone production facility, which had a need for a direct feed of their products. The new air separation plant capped a $30 million investment by Airgas Merchant Gases, LLC in the facility. The plant was designed to capacity to liquefy at least 350 tons per day of nitrogen, oxygen, and argon for bulk delivery and provides a direct pipeline that supplies nitrogen to the Dow Corning facility. Our engineers and surveyors provided complete civil engineering and surveying design services for the project, including grading, storm water pollution prevention (erosion control), roadways, parking, potable water distribution, sanitary sewerage, and storm drainage. We worked closely with the developer to ensure that the project met their stringent standards. The project was completed in the summer of 2008.
