    Industries of all types rely on energy to power their operations: Food and beverage, aerospace, waste-water treatment, recycling, the energy operations themselves – the list goes on and on. But, times are changing, and changing very rapidly for the energy industry. New EPA requirements need to be up to date by the year Base Construction Generator Installation Image 12020. This deadline for compliance with the EPA’s Clean Power Plan will dramatically transform the energy landscape in the U.S.

    “Clean power” plays an important role in the manufacturing industries’ efforts to become more sustainable and environmentally friendly; however, these efforts will take some time to plan and construct. One recent news report says, “A vastly changed power generation mix will be the result of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s plan to reduce greenhouse gases from existing power plants, but industry and utilities will need more time to build it…” While utilities and industrial plants revise and retrofit their operations to meet EPA requirements, many will be installing generators, and other heavy equipment, onsite, at their facilities.

    Base Construction installs generators, industrial equipment, and machinery at all types of industrial plants. This includes the “heavy” industry plants, such as chemical plants, energy plants (co-generation, geothermal and solar), food & beverage, recycling, aerospace, and more. We specialize in handling all phases of industrial projects, including design, fabrication, and installation at industrial plants in Southern California.

    Getting back to the specifics, whether it’s heat, steam, or electricity that is powering a plant and keeping production Large Diesel generatorlines moving, industrial operations rely on generators. Many operations today, in all kinds of industries, are co-gen (cogeneration) plants, where energy that used to be “wasted” and possibly emitted into the atmosphere is now put to good use on site. For instance, this “secondary” energy that is generated is heat or steam that can be used to warm up water or other fluids in a production line. The popularity of co-gen systems is attributed to the overall cost savings and the “environmental friendliness” of these types of operations. The cost savings include government incentives offered to industrial operations with co-gen operations.

    We’d be happy to tell you more about the advantages of co-gen operations, and if you’re in Southern California, we can show you the advantages of working with Base Construction to install generators and other industrial equipment at your facilities.

  2. Big Machinery Installations in Small Spaces: We Can Make it Happen

    Base Construction ProjectIn manufacturing, it’s often about making the impossible possible.

    Think about it: there are countless machines, products, and services that were created to fill a need, to answer the question, “can this be done?” That’s what we at Base Construction are all about—taking a seemingly difficult or impossible task and making it happen seamlessly.

    Setting and installing heavy machinery is a complex, difficult task. Very often it involves placing equipment into a very tight spot, and making sure nothing is compromised in the process. This is where we come in, and where we thrive.

    mechanical_equipment_4Heavy machinery—whether being installed in a new location or being moved from one spot to another—requires skill and care. There are requirements prior to installation, including leveling, anchoring, and of course safety assurance, and when the spot is tight, meeting these requirements becomes more of a challenge.

    We do this on a daily basis. Just recently we worked with a client who had a large machine shipped from Italy to Los Angeles. We brought the machine to their site and installed it in an extremely tight spot inside their facilities. The equipment was set up flawlessly, and was up and running in no time.

    Because difficult installations are one of our specialties, our crew is highly experienced in it; they know what to expect, what to avoid, and how to get the job done right.

    Air compressors, labelers, wrappers, vacuum furnaces, presses, large skids, large ovens, boilers, heat exchangers, generators…these are just some of the many things we can install in tight spots, getting our clients’ machines in and working without a hitch. We’ve spent decades helping our customers expect and achieve the impossible.
