Jockey Pumps used in a Stormwater Pumping System

Part Six: Praxair Hydrogen Refinery in Port Arthur, Texas

In part six of this industrial stormwater blog series, Romtec Utilities worked with Praxair, Inc. and S & B Engineers and Constructors on another addition to a Valero Refinery, this time in Port Arthur, Texas. This project provides an opportunity to demonstrate how Romtec Utilities can design for precise pumping goals when the criteria for stations are essentially the same but with crucial differences.

Part Five: Praxair Hydrogen Refinery in St. Charles, Louisiana

Last week, a stormwater pump station for Dow Chemical Corporation was discussed in terms of integrating into an existing stormwater system. Today in part five of the industrial stormwater blog series, we’ll look at a deeper level of stormwater pump station integration for an expansion to the Valero St. Charles Refinery. Romtec Utilities collaborated with Praxair, Inc. and S & B Engineers and Constructors to design this combination stormwater and process water pump station.

Part Four: Dow Chemical Company in Plaquemine, Louisiana

Part four of this industrial stormwater blog series has us going down to the banks of the Mississippi to the Dow Chemical Company Louisiana Operations in Plaquemine. This facility is gargantuan. Dow actually co-located two of their companies at the same facility, creating a huge manufacturing complex. The facilities produce plastics, solvents, paints, adhesives, cosmetics, detergents, pharmaceuticals, and much more. Romtec Utilities supplied Dow with a fully packaged fiberglass pump station that integrated into an existing stormwater and control system.

Part Three: British Petroleum Cherry Point Refinery in Birch Bay, Washington

British Petroleum’s Cherry Point Refinery is the subject of part three of the industrial stormwater blog series. This refinery is located near Birch Bay, Washington and is less than a mile from the Salish Sea shoreline. It is the biggest oil refinery in the State of Washington, producing as many as a quarter of a million barrels per day. To address runoff concerns, Cherry Point purchased a Romtec Utilities stormwater pump station.


Industrial, Stormwater Pump station at the Ajax Gas Plant

Part Two: Ajax Gas Plant in Wheeler, Texas

The Ajax Gas Plant in Wheeler, Texas is the first example in this industrial stormwater blog series. This plant owned by Enbridge Energy Partners is a natural gas processing and refining facility that is currently under construction. The Ajax plant is expected to be operational on schedule in early 2013, and one of the final systems added was the Romtec Utilities supplied package stormwater pump station.
