ISC Project Receives Best of Best Award from Engineering News Record

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, January 27, 2021 – ISC announced today that MEGlobal’s BookraMeg Project was named a Best of the Best Project in the Energy/Industrial category by Engineering News-Record (ENR). ISC served as the Electrical & Instrumentation contractor on the world-scale project that will produce 750,000 metric-ton-per-annum monoethylene glycol and diethylene glycol facility in Oyster Creek, Texas.  ISC engaged early to expedite project completion using innovative construction methodologies.

ISC’s role proved to be a vital component in the project being delivered safely, ahead of schedule and within budget.  The ISC team was able to deliver its scope of work 10 weeks early by leveraging its best-in-class craftsmanship and supervision to create a dynamic scope tracking system, prioritize scope planning for crews and implement value engineering to minimize time and cost required for the project.

“ISC’s accomplishments are attributed to the unmatched skill and safety of our craftspeople, operators and supervision, and we are proud to be a part of the MEGlobal project team,” said Jerry Rispone, CEO/Co-Owner of ISC. “The success of this project and the recognition it has received is a testament to the innovative approach that all parties adopted to ensure safe and timely delivery of work.”

More than 295 ISC associates were on site at peak to complete the installation of over 1,500 field instruments, 1,900 light fixtures and major electrical equipment, including MCC, DCS, Analyzer Racks and RIO Cabinets.  At project completion, ISC had safely installed 167,411 feet of conduit, 2,385,156 feet of cable/wire and 113,539 feet of tray.  All installations required new and innovative technologies to ensure the state-of-the-art facility can cost effectively produce ethylene glycol, a key building block for manufacturing polyester fibers, plastic bottles, and other everyday products.

ENR received approximately 900 project submissions in 20 categories for their regional Best Projects competition in the Spring of 2020. MEGlobal’s BookraMEG Project is now one of 20 project finalists for Best of the Best project recognition, which will be announced in April 2021.
