The Shaw Group Announces Pipe Fabrication Award for Paper Mill Conversion Project

The Shaw Group is pleased to announce it has secured a project award to deliver pipe fabrication solutions for a paper mill conversion project.

Shaw’s scope of this project includes approximately 51,000 linear feet of stainless-steel pipe. The expected spool count is in excess of 4,500. The anticipated completion date is slated for the end of the first quarter of 2022. Due to the nature of the materials, the project will be fabricated in a segregated shop to ensure the integrity of the project.

The project will be completed out of Shaw’s Walker, LA facility, which sits on 77 acres and boasts a highly optimized layout capable of producing 6,500 spools per month.

“We’re extremely pleased to deliver a key component, pipe fabrication, to the first 100-percent recycled packaging manufacturing facility,” said Shaw President and CEO Mike Childers. “The hallmark of Shaw’s core competencies is our ability to serve as trusted partners and help our clients bring their projects to fruition efficiently.”

For Shaw, this award affirms the company’s position as a leader in pipe fabrication services to a variety of industries including oil and gas, heavy construction, power, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage and wastewater. The company boasts 2.2 million square feet of fabrication and manufacturing capacity in the U.S. and Middle East with the capability to provide premier pipe fabrication, module and induction bending services to industrial clients throughout the world.
