Chicken of the Sea, the company with the ionic mermaid logo, selected Nationwide Boiler Inc. to supply the company’s new Lyons, GA canning plant with a 650 HP (22,500 lbs/hr) Mobile Boiler Room for temporary steam. The 200,000 square-foot facility was planned to help in the creation of 200 jobs around Toombs County and plans to process frozen tuna loins into Chicken of the Sea canned tuna.

Nationwide Boiler's Rental Sales Manager, Michael Medina, helped secure the order, noting the positive effect the new plant will have on the local economy. "This new plant is a major accomplishment for Chicken of the Sea and the surrounding community. We are proud that our boiler will allow the plant to efficiently produce their tuna and quickly bring it to market throughout the United States.”

The mobile boiler room was on site for one-year and easily met the steam requirements of the plant. Today, the Chicken of the Sea plant is still operating strong and is proud to bring manufacturing back in the U.S.

The USEPA announced today new proposed carbon dioxide limits for new power plants that will set separate standards for coal-fired and natural gas-fired generating units.  The proposed limit for new gas plants is 1,000 pounds per megawatt-hour for new gas units and 1,100 pounds per megawatt-hour for smaller gas plants and new coal plants. New coal plants would be allowed to average their emissions over a seven-year period if they agreed to meet a more stringent standard in a range from 1,000 pounds per megawatt-hour to 1,050 pounds per megawatt-hour. 

This rule is a new proposal, revising an earlier proposal from April 2012, in which the USEPA had intended to set a single standard of 1,000 pounds per megawatt-hour for both coal- and gas-fired plants.  Under the proposal, new power plants would have to install carbon capture and sequestration technologies to comply with the emissions limits outlined for the plants.   Those technologies capture carbon dioxide and bury it underground but requiring use of the technologies has been vigorously opposed by industry user groups, which say they are not feasible yet. 

For more details about this new proposal visit: http://www2.epa.gov/carbon-pollution-standards/2013-proposed-carbon-pollution-standard-new-power-plants. Included are fact sheets, technical sheets, and regulatory impact sheets, along with a link to the previously-proposed 2012 rules for comparison.

This month twelve years ago Nationwide Boiler responded to an emergency call at Ground Zero. The horrific events in New York City on September 11, 2001 left many buildings without heat and other necessary steam-based facilities due to the destruction of the steam delivery infrastructure. The devastation of the area included a 20-inch steam main used for delivery of the steam to users. In order to restore activities around the damaged area of Ground Zero, facilities, including steam delivery, had to be replaced and temporary boilers were required.

Within hours of receiving the go-ahead for the emergency rental, shipping arrangements were made for a complete 140,000 lb/hr steam plant to be installed near the damaged steam main at Ground Zero. A 70,000 lb/hr trailer-mounted rental boiler was dispatched from the Nationwide Boiler East facility in Delanco, NJ, and a self-contained water treatment van and second rental boiler were shipped from the Nationwide Boiler headquarters in Fremont, CA.

Operating on a fast-track basis, the steam plant was delivered, brought on-line and readied for operation at Ground Zero in a matter of days. The system steam main was connected to temporary steam distribution lines, providing offices and residences in the area with heat and the other steam-based services.

If you are in an emergency situation and need temporary steam, Nationwide Boiler’s mobile rental boilers can be shipped immediately, worldwide. Download our emergency preparedness plan and contact us today at 1-800-227-1966.
