Shanghai Compressor

Keeley was selected to pour the foundations, set the compressors, and erect a building around the newly set compressors.

Project Details

Ameren was in need of larger compressors to handle the demand for natural gas. Keeley was selected to help them achieve this by pouring the foundations, setting the compressors, and erecting a building around the newly set compressors. Ameren stores their natural gas in rock beneath the ground, and in addition to distribution, the new compressors also provide storage, pumping the gas down into these natural underground pockets. 

One major challenge of this project was the process of setting two 98-ton compressors from 60 feet away. In order to accomplish this, Keeley used two cranes (350tn and 300tn) to simultaneously pick up a compressor and place it onto its foundation. 

Despite being on a tight schedule, Keeley had the compressors ready to accommodate the demand for natural gas on-time and within budget. Scan the QR Code to watch our process video of the project.
