Boeing Renton Facility

Boeing Renton Facility

The Boeing 737 Renton Production Facility leads the industry as the most efficient airplane factory in the world and continues to roll out at least 42 airplanes per month.

Challenge: When Boeing was planning a new building to expand their manufacturing capabilities, they needed dependable and efficient compressed air systems to maintain their record production efficiency.

Our solution: Over the course of 3 years, we will be supplying and installing several fixed-speed and variable-speed compressors across multiple phases of commission.

Type: Aviation production facility
Location: Renton, Washington
Timeline: Multi-phase over 3 years

In 2013, Northwest Pump & Equipment started working on a project through Coffman Engineering to Supply a new compressed air system that would supply general purpose air to the new 4-20 building at Boeing’s Renton facility. The system is comprised of three Sullair Two Stage Rotary Screw Compressors: two fixed speed 500HP and one 600HP variable speed.

The system provides for a wide range of compressed air demand that will often fluctuate based on the plant’s productivity. During times where demand for air will fluctuate, the 500HP compressor systems provide a steady “base load supply while the 600HP variable speed system follows the profile of the demand to conserve energy. The compressors provide a supply of air ranging from 500 SCFM up to 6,500 SCFM.

This compressor system was designed with the intention to maintain dependability and energy efficiency. The reliability of the Sullair Two Stage Compressor is something Boeing has recognized for several decades and is a tried and true compressor design by many top engineers in the field of pneumatics.

The first stage of the 4-20 building was commissioned in the summer of 2015. The system is provisioned for a total of five compressors, the second stage of the installation is scheduled and projected to be delivered in late 2016.

There’s no doubt that e-mobility is the next frontier of fueling. Convenience stores are perfectly positioned to capitalize on the electric vehicle revolution and businesses are ready to help retailers navigate this new age.

The future needs of commercial and retail customers require a commitment from their equipment distributors to recognize the “mixed fuels” future when providing solutions for station remodels and tank systems installations, along with the time-consuming EMV upgrades that are taking place today. A transition from liquid fuels to electrons will require a new approach to this new market augmenting a traditional fueling solution.
