The 317 Shipping Containers Along Energy Transfer’s Pipelines

Posted by Paige Welsh on Wed, Jan 17, 2018 @ 09:46 AM

Imagine thousands of miles of pipeline carrying crude oil from the prairies of the Dakotas to the wetlands of Louisiana. Dotted alongside the pipeline are unmanned monitoring stations called remote terminal units (RTUs). RTUs often go months without attention, but when they do need to be serviced, snow and ice pose a serious challenge. If the RTU has a minimal bus-stop style shelter, the technician will sometimes have to dig the instrumentation out of the snow and chisel off a layer of ice.

Big House Sound Containerizes for the Longhorns Football Season

Posted by Paige Welsh on Wed, Dec 06, 2017 @ 09:15 AM

It was crunch time for Big House Sound (BHS), a company that installs high-end sound systems for large events. University of Texas at Austin (UT) was upgrading the Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium for the new football season. After a competitive bidding process, UT selected Big House Sound to create a world-class sound system that could reach every fan in the 430,118 square-foot stadium. It was all going according to plan until a vendor hit a rut: the enclosures for BHS’ amplifiers were not going to be ready in time. As an Austin-based company, Falcon is made of many UT alumni, including our co-owners, and avid Longhorn fans. We were more than ready to help keep the upcoming football season on schedule.

Containerized Water Treatment Plants use Microbes for Good

Posted by Paige Welsh on Wed, Nov 29, 2017 @ 09:30 AM

As municipalities across the United States prepare for infrastructure updates, modular water treatment equipment can serve as a stepping stone to larger treatment plant goals or long-term installations for businesses and communities. Containerized membrane bioreactors (MBRs) and moving bed bioreactors (MBBRs) plants, which can treat waste water to a level that is acceptable for environmental discharge, are great example of modular treatment plants in action. Because container-based plants arrive prewired and pre-plumbed, small communities and remote businesses can quickly deploy a sewage and industrial waste solution with minimal site preparation. The MBBR and MBR process is delicate, but a shipping container can keep internal conditions just right for microbes while maintaining convenience for human users.

Shipping Containers Offer Mobility and Functionality for Oil and Gas

Posted by Paige Welsh on Wed, Oct 04, 2017 @ 10:51 AM

Pumping oil and gas from miles beneath the surface requires millions of dollars of equipment and months of around the clock work. The remoteness and the climate of drilling sites often make this already difficult job even more challenging. Oil and gas businesses must set-up equipment-enclosures and temporary living spaces everywhere from deep jungles to icy tundra—frequently far from the conveniences of modern infrastructure.

Shipping Container Equipment Enclosures Help the Unsung Heroes of Water Treatment

Posted by Paige Welsh on Wed, Sep 27, 2017 @ 09:31 AM

The connection between flushing toilets and water treatment is fairly obvious, but what does flicking a light switch have to do with clean water?
