SGL Carbon Fiber Phases I and II
Phase I of this 120,000 square ft. expansion includes a new carbon fiber manufacturing line with four new ovens or one fiber path that now allows Carbon Fiber to double their manufacturing output. R&O erected huge concrete tilt-up panels (48-ft tall, weighing up to 228,000 lbs.) where the carbon fiber ovens were installed.
In order to meet the tight construction schedule, and to ready the project for the necessary equipment installation, R&O poured a 12 inch concrete slab floor starting at 2:30 am.
The Phase II expansion included both interior and exterior construction resulting in a new carbon fiber manufacturing line and the installation of new equipment.
