ConocoPhillips Wood River Refinery
Wegman Electric Company has been at the forefront of industrial electrical installation throughout the region. In 2008, Conoco Phillips Wood River Refinery , Wegman Electric’s largest customer, and a customer for the past 50 years, began a major addition and facility upgrade to increase its refining capacity. This addition included the largest electrical project in the refinery’s history, an upgrade of the electrical distribution system in the plant from 34.5kv to 138kv. Wegman Electric was selected to complete this project, which included cable tray installation, placing over 55 miles of armored cable, termination of the cables and cutover of the new system without disrupting the existing day to day operations. This project will provide a more reliable and efficient electrical distribution throughout the refinery. This project required 20000 man hours and was completed on time without a single recordable incident.
