Emco Wheaton is set to complete the design, manufacture and delivery of 11 Marine Loading Arms (MLAs) for a major US based Oil Company. The highly respected engineering firm which was hired by the oil company to design a state of the art barge loading facility has closely work with Emco Wheaton for the MLA portion of the project. The arms will be installed in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Illinois and will see barge throughput double compared to current levels.
The order is part of an ongoing success story for Emco Wheaton which has seen other large product wins confirmed with Suncor, Invista and Crosstex energy. The company has seen the manufacture of MLAs return to its Houston, Texas facility which has reduced lead times, shipping costs and ensuring that a local team is always on hand to offer advice or help with products.
