Charter Street Heating Plant


Pipe Fabrication Services for Heating Plants in the Madison Area

Ahern provided prefabricated steam boiler and cooling water piping to the Charter Street Heating Plant (CSHP) in Madison, Wisconsin, which delivers heating and cooling to the UW campus and also generates electricity. On-time deliveries were vital, as the plant needed to be operational before the cold Wisconsin winter set in. Ahern handled the tight schedule, and provided additional value by pre-welding supports to certain spools as needed, saving the customer valuable on-site installation time.
