Turner Industries’ SIPA group at Vertex Energy in Saraland, Alabama, has successfully completed its scope of work for phase one of the renewable diesel facility construction.
The SIPA team put in a total of 180,588 work hours, consisting of day and night shifts. The scope of work included scaffold, insulation, paint, and fireproofing. Along with other various complex jobs, the SIPA team erected over 620 scaffolds with zero OSHA recordable incidents.
The site management team included Scaffold Superintendent Joseph “Blue” Raborn, Paint Supervisor Wayne Rodrigue, Insulation Supervisor Michael Longoria, and Fireproof and Insulation Supervisor Jorge Cruz Fuentes.
The whole SIPA team has a great attitude and is eager to do the job the right way every time. One of the things that impressed me the most is the leadership training commitment, and the result is evident in the team’s performance.
