Novozymes is an enzyme production facility co-located at the bio-refinery complex in Blair, Nebraska. They provide the biofuels industry with a critical component to efficiently bring ethanol to the marketplace. As production processes advance, Novozymes is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of next generation biofuels. As an on-site Project Engineering resource, EAD provides assistance in executing capital projects.
In early 2013, Novozymes began a project to improve the efficiency of their cooling tower system, providing the site with a critical utility for sustainable operation. EAD was tasked with management of project scope, schedule, and budget, working closely with a refrigeration contractor based in Florida. Project success was driven by the ability to execute a fast-track project in a predetermined plant shut-down window. Novozymes, EAD, and contractor personnel were all heavily involved in project scheduling and construction, which ultimately provided Novozymes with an on time and on budget deliverable.
