The Evansville Water Filtration Plant was originally built in 1870. Since that time, there have been many improvements and additions. Today, the Evansville Water Filtration Plant is a conventional treatment plant facility designed to pump 60 million gallons of water a day. For the latest improvement, PPMI was awarded a $4.8 million project to upgrade all of the chemical feed processes. This recent upgrade addresses the feed and capacity of the chemical systems in conjuntion with changing out 120 computer actuated valves which are tied into a master SCADA system. This job is a multi-craft project utilizing electrical, mechanical, and civil groups within PPMI.
The Honda plant sits on 1700 acres and is more than 1 million sq. ft. The major operations of the facility include; stamping, welding, painting, plastic injection molding, sub-assembly and assembly, testing, quality assurance and shipping. PPMI installed the Paint Shop process drain piping, Assembly Building utility piping, primary and secondary utility piping/equipment for E-Coat, Phosphate, and Sludge system, and waste water treatment piping.
PPMI Construction was recently awarded a multimillion dollar project under Johnson Controls, Inc. to replace the existing raw water intake for the City of Mt. Vernon, Indiana. Highlights of the project include completely replacing the primary raw water intake system including the pumps and controls and installing two new river bottom intake lines on the bottom of the Ohio River. Other aspects of the project include refurbishing the existing secondary low lift intake, replacement of existing plant piping, and the addition of an electrical control building. All of these projects will increase the reliability, efficiency, and capacity of the water supply system.
