Summit Shelters Building Materials Company from Energy Crisis with Quick Thinking and Decisive Action

When a building products company faced a natural gas shutoff with the potential to cause millions of dollars in losses, the company turned to Summit Energy to devise an alternate fuel solution. Summit’s energy professionals facilitated the project from beginning-to-end without interruption in fuel service and no operational downtime.

Having an Energy Backup Plan Can Avert Serious Financial Losses: Energy management is an ever-changing, volatile field that demands consistent day-to-day attention and swift action to meet unexpected challenges. A crisis, such as an energy shutoff, can cost millions of dollars. Knowing how to handle these issues prevents an interruption in service and avoids the possibility of expensive losses.

SITUATION
A $5 billion corrugated packaging and building materials company received short notice that the natural gas pipeline for its Texas mill would be out of service for three days or more for maintenance. Even this short disruption would result in millions of dollars in losses for the mill. Summit Energy went to work immediately to provide its client with an alternate solution.

LEADERSHIP
On Summit Energy’s recommendation, the packaging and building materials company installed a 4,000-gallon-per-hour vaporizer assembly that enabled the mill to operate on pure propane. The propane system connected at the same point as the natural gas system, and necessary changes were made to the boilers. To ensure the switchover went as planned, Summit was involved throughout the installation process. In addition, Summit provided a detailed analysis of the project upon its successful implementation.

RESULTS
The transition from natural gas to propane was quick and seamless, without any downtime or interruption in fuel service. Summit’s leadership and the collaboration of the entire Texas mill team, resulted in a strategy that averted disaster and prevented significant financial impact. According to the mill’s technical manager, the outcome “reinforces the value that Summit brings to our company.”
