Tesoro Refinery improvement project wins award

A Water Treatment Plant improvement project for the Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company in Mandan, has been recognized with an Engineering Excellence award.  The award is from the North Dakota chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies in the Industrial and Manufacturing Processes and Facilities category.

Tesoro was experiencing issues with their WTP and retained Advanced Engineering and Environmental Services, Inc. to evaluate the situation and develop a plan to remedy the issues. AE2S engineers developed a creative solution that utilized existing plant infrastructure with modifications to improve WTP performance. This resulted in a cost-effective, more efficient water treatment system.

The purpose of the ACEC of ND awards is to recognize innovation, expertise, and achievements in engineering throughout the state. The award will be formally presented at this year’s award banquet on May 7, at the Radisson Hotel in Bismarck.
