The Merck & Co MSO (Multiple Scale Organics) projects, provided Merck
with a state-of-the art multi-use Pilot Plant facility. The new facility
gives Merck the ability to test and evaluate several products in the pipeline
simultaneously, allowing them to quickly advance market development.
When awarded the Merck & Co MSO modules project, Binsky & Snyder
installed over 300,000 ft of piping and 1,000+ pieces of equipment in
support of this new Pilot Plant facility, the largest one to date.
Binsky was involved in the early development of the project, and partnered
with Merck in the engineering, fabrication and construction planning necessary
to support this massive, complex facility. With over 220 pipefitters on
Binsky’s crew and 57 miles of piping to be installed, the coordination
and aggressive schedules required, mandated an attention to detail and
strong team cooperation.
Binsky & Snyder completed all required chemical, process, and high
purity piping on this one-of-a-kind facility.
The project necessitated the use of sophisticated 3D modeling systems,
isometric fabrication, installation tracking and reporting from initial
construction activity through the rigorous commissioning and validation process.
