Western Wisconsin Energy (Big River Resources, LLC)



In just five weeks, Ahern successfully completed its fire protection design and 560 labor hours to install a deluge fire protection system at Western Wisconsin Energy’s 57 million gallon-per-year ethanol production facility in Boyceville, Wisconsin. This system was required before the plant could transfer ownership. To avoid on-site delays, Ahern held numerous preliminary meetings to better plan its work. It also doubled its installation team.
