TIC – The Industrial Company provides direct-hire construction services to traditional industrial markets across the United States. The same mission the original company had when it began more than 35 years ago. Those markets include power, mining/minerals, oil, gas and chemical, renewable energy, general services and maintenance, substation installations/high voltage testing for the chemical, power and refinery industries and marine/heavy civil and fabrication. TIC provides specialized services through its T. E.

The TransCanada projects consisted of several crude oil pump stations spread from the Canadian border in eastern North Dakota to the southern border of South Dakota continuing through Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma. The project also utilized fabrication shops that TIC set up in Tower City, N.D., Fargo, N.D., Huron, S.D., and Freeport, Texas. Each station was unique in size and layout.
The project consisted of retrofitting these boilers with Selective Catalytic Reduction systems for NOx abatement and included one SCR reactor per unit, draft ID fans, structural support steel, ductwork, ammonia piping, electrical equipment, instrumentation and boiler modifications.
