Casey Industrial, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MasTec, Inc. (NYSE: MTZ), is proud to announce the award of the PowerSouth Lowman Energy Center Units 1 & 2 Mechanical Construction project in Leroy, Alabama by PowerSouth Energy Cooperative. The new plant will replace the Charles R. Lowman coal‐fired power plant that began operation in 1969. It will be among the world’s most fuel-efficient natural gas power plants and have among the lowest carbon dioxide emissions of any combined-cycle plant.

Casey Industrial Installs 5th Engine for City of Tallahassee

In November 2018, Casey Industrial wrapped up construction on the installation of four Wärtsilä 50SG reciprocating engines at the Arvah B. Hopkins Generating

Station in Tallahassee, Florida. Following the success of the original project, the City of Tallahassee awarded Casey Industrial an expansion project involving the complete installation of a fifth Wärtsilä 50SG engine.

The Casey team has been back on site and diligently working toward completion since June 2019. On November 27th, the team received a major delivery – the engine arrived on site. The site team and the City are very pleased with the progress being made and look forward to seeing the engine move into its final position in the engine hall alongside the other four engines.

Casey recognizes the need to move toward “grid balancing” energy options and is proud to have installed 90 Reciprocating Engines across the United States, ranging in size from 500 KW to 18 MW and providing our customers with back-up power and generation projects in the 1 MW to 200+ MW range. In a story documented by WCTV, this installation is one of several projects the City of Tallahassee is pursuing in order to provide clean, reliable energy to their residents.

Casey Industrial Wins Summit County Project for CDOT

This summer, Casey Industrial competed for a major electrical project in the Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnels located on I-70 in Summit and Clear Creek Counties.

After an extensive review process and steps to clear the requirements for additional funding, the project was awarded to Casey Industrial. This Design-Build project will allow Casey to work closely with CDOT to finalize the scope of the project, narrow in on cost savings, and provide much needed electrical improvements in the two tunnels. Casey will replace the Motor Control Centers, add Variable Frequency Drives and new Switchgear, and oversee the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) integration. Completion of the work is expected in October 2020.

Casey is excited to work with CDOT in our home state to help with these improvements for the people of Colorado.

Casey Completes California Forging Press Project

In July 2016, Casey Industrial mobilized to Paramount, California to begin work on a stamping press supplied by SMS group and owned by Weber Metals, a subsidiary of Otto Fuchs KG. This press, with a maximum pressing force of 60,000 short tons, was born from a desire to create lighter weight aerospace components. Utilizing forged aluminum and titanium, it can produce lightweight and optimized pieces to be used in the fuselage, wings, undercarriage, and engines.

At a weight of approximately 19.5 million pounds, this press was built with over 9,000 tons of steel, more than was once used to build the Eiffel Tower. This is the largest pull-down die forging press in the world.

Through the project, this team worked in tight quarters to install several miles of piping and tubing, successfully completed thousands of complex welds, and pulled nearly twenty miles of electrical cable. Our Mechanical crew was challenged with getting several large and heavy components into extremely tight spaces. With the use of some creative bull rigging and large cranes, they accomplished the task and met every milestone.

On October 23rd, 2018, Casey’s President, Stephen Brague, and the Project Manager, Paul Kikel, attended a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the owner, Otto Fuchs KG, to celebrate the completion of the press. A video of the impressive unveiling can be seen here.

Casey Industrial is very proud to have been a part of this exceptional project. If you need a creative and dedicated general contractor, please give us a call. We’d love to help with your next project.




Casey Gains Traction in CLT Market

Casey Industrial has been awarded a contract with Katerra to construct their 250k square foot mass timber manufacturing facility in Spokane, Washington. Casey will self-perform mechanical and electrical work through early 2019.

Cross Laminated Timber, which will be produced in this facility, is a relatively new building product with a low carbon footprint and sound structural integrity. This product can be used for residential homes, office buildings, apartment complexes, and other commercial spaces. Because of the pre-cut and fabricated nature of the material, the use of CLT in these applications has resulted in a 20% faster construction schedule, as well as reduced risk.

As companies in our industry strive to reduce environmental impact and seek out sustainable alternatives to development and construction, Casey is pleased to be a part of bringing CLT to America and we look forward to taking part in the future development and construction of CLT facilities across the country.

Partners for Change

Last September, Casey was approached by Homes of Living Hope with an opportunity to use our unique skills to turn an old connex into a vocational arts school for students at Musana Vocational High School in Iganga, Uganda. From priming and painting, to framing and welding tables and easels, Casey employees jumped at the opportunity to be a part of this unique project.

The new classroom left our parking lot earlier this year and was filled with educational and medical supplies before being shipped to Africa. It will soon be on site in Uganda, where it will be joined with other connex containers and turned into a functioning school building where students will receive education and skills training.

We are so pleased to have been a part of this project, but we could not have done it without help from our fantastic partners who provided donations and materials to make this project a success. Many thanks to these companies and to Musana and Homes of Living Hope for the great opportunity.
