Kentucky Compressor Building

Kentucky Compressor Building
This new compressor building supports a $500MM pipeline expansion project in the southeast and south central regions of the US, providing 200,000 Mcf/d of additional capacity to an existing pipeline. This project is one of four new compressor stations designed to increase gas transportation capacity from West Virginia to delivery points along the Gulf Coast. USSI engineered this compressor building structure to mitigate station noise to specified acceptable levels. Construction challenges included severe weather which was overcome during spring construction at this greenfield site, and the project was completed on-time and on budget.


  • 6,400 S.F. compressor building with 25-ton electric bridge crane to attenuate a Titan 250 turbine
  • 24 gage roof and wall panels with USSI's proprietary acoustical package designed to meet the required 55 dB noise level at 50' from the structure
  • Hot-dipped galvanized primary structural and pre-galvanized secondary structural framing
  • Insulated acoustical roll-up doors and walk doors
  • Catalytic heaters
  • USSI also provided a 4,400 S.F. auxiliary building with a 2-Ton crane and 1,600 S. F. second floor.
