Haskell Corp. completed its
project without an environmental
incident amid one of the
rainiest periods on record.
Crude railcar off-loading facility
General contractor: Haskell Corp.
Owner/developer: Tesoro Refining and Marketing Co.
Primary designer: Wilson & Co.
The Haskell team’s project involved moving 500,000 cubic yards of soil in sensitive areas during severe weather events, capturing and treating 4 million gallons of stormwater, installing 30,000 linear feet of pipe, pouring 6,000 cubic yards of concrete, and installing 29,000 linear feet of rail.
Seventeen work packages were issued for the project, requiring a comprehensive execution plan that encompassed the whole project.
While working during one of the rainiest periods on record, the Haskell team used an electrocoagulation technology that removed suspended sediment from the captured stormwater, resulting in zero environmental incidents. Plus, the fabrication facilities at Haskell supported the project by supplying all the process piping for the project on a just-in-time basis.
The owner praised Haskell for its leadership and commitment to excellence, noting that the project was completed six weeks ahead of schedule and significantly under cost.
