Nationwide Boiler Achieves New Safety Milestone

Nationwide Boiler has achieved yet another safety milestone – 2,500 days without a loss time accident! This marks the longest length of time Nationwide has gone without an accident in our forty-four years of operation. The company maintains a shop facility of 26,000 sq.ft., used for the maintenance, repair and assembly of boiler systems and auxiliaries. Nationwide Boiler’s Experience Modification Rate (EMR), a benchmark measure used for insurance premium discounts that compares worker compensation claims to other employers of similar size operating in the same type of business, has greatly improved over the last seven years. To date, Nationwide Boiler has realized a cumulative cost savings of over three-hundred-thousand dollars as a result of the company's commitments to safety.

Duke’s Coal Conversion Soon To Be a Reality

boiler_web_photo.jpg

On April 14, 2011 Duke burned the last of its remaining stock of coal from its famous black mountain off Coal Pile Drive. As part of Duke's Climate Action Plan to become carbon neutral by 2024, the University is converting its West Campus steam plant from a coal-burning plant to a natural gas-burning plant.

To aid in the University's efforts, Nationwide Boiler supplied a temporary 82,500 lb/hr trailer-mounted boiler for the plant, proudly delivered to the University with their Blue Devil logo. The boiler will be used until next Spring while the West Campus Steam Plant acts as a "base plant", along with steam produced at the East Campus plant, to heat Duke's buildings, sterilize surgical equipment and maintain proper humidity for art work and lab research.

Duke's director of Sustainable Duke, Tavey McDaniel Capps, said Duke's steam plant renovations make it a leader for other colleges and universities who are also focused on helping the environment. "This kind of step is pivotal in our effort to move closer to carbon neutrality," she said. "Being proactive in our sustainable efforts will make a big difference in the future."
