3 Bay Ltd. |

From its humble beginnings in Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1953, second-generation, family-owned Bay Ltd. “Bay” is now a recognized leader throughout the Americas in Heavy Industrial Construction, Maintenance, and Fabrication services for the Process Industry. Their business partners include Industry leaders in the Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream Process Industry space as well as low carbon innovators ranging from renewable fuels to leaders in the Wind Power Industry. Bay’s success is born from the commitment of over 3,000 skilled Supervisors and Craft professionals who execute complex, industry hallmark projects every day. Supported by outstanding project management systems and processes, Bay is able to document, track and report project status metrics to their field teams and clients no matter how remote their worksite may be. These same Field and Support teams contribute thousands of volunteer hours in all the communities where they operate, benefitting the disadvantaged and organizations that support the community. Their culture inspires taking the lessons learned and applied in the industrial work setting home to their families and neighbors to ensure safety and quality in their communities.

Excelling at What They Know

Excellence in executing challenging projects is what Bay does every day with genuine care for the safety and well-being of coworkers, clients, and other contractors. Its people’s culture of caring is supported by its business partners and, collectively, positively impacts all communities where they operate.

Bay Ltd. has an extensive track record of successfully executing large-scale industrial construction projects both domestically and internationally, with ventures that include grassroots construction projects, process unit revamps and upgrades, and plant turnarounds

for refineries, power generation, and chemical and petrochemical facilities. In addition, by selfperforming the majority of construction disciplines on a project, including civil, structural, piping installation, instrument and electrical, crane and heavy hauling, scaffolding and insulation, and industrial dismantling, their project delivery system provides a single point of contact for business partners.

People Focused on and off the Job Site

As a family owned and operated company, their employees are Bay Ltd’s greatest source of

pride. Throughout the company’s history, generations of employees have been proud to call Bay Ltd. home, with grandparents working alongside children and grandchildren as they strengthen the company’s progress through dedication and hard work. They value the health and well-being of every member of the Bay Ltd. family. For this reason, instilling a culture of safety and accountability has become their number one priority with its Beyond Zero Culture: People Caring About People’s Safety, a nationally recognized, award-winning safety program. Bay Ltd. is more than an operation; it sets standards for performance and innovation. Continually recognized for an outstanding safety record, their team of craftsmen and supervisors hold each other accountable on the job each day to ensure that every project is completed safely and efficiently. Their Beyond Zero Safety Program emphasizes that safety is more than a practice; it’s a responsibility to care for others, with far-reaching impacts that extend beyond the job site and into their families and the community. This commitment to safety and improving the quality of their workforce has led to a record-breaking 30 million safe manhours without an OSHA LTI, making Bay Ltd. one of the safest industrial contractors in the

5 Bay Ltd. |

nation. Feats such as this cannot be accomplished alone. For this reason, the Beyond Zero safety program stresses the importance of each employee’s responsibility for the safety of others and ensuring that everyone returns home in better condition, both mentally and physically than that in which they came to work. Above all, Bay’s commitment to an injuryfree workplace is what continues to push its impeccable safety record to even greater milestones.

Bay strives to share this “Culture of Caring” outside the confines of their company to the local communities and beyond through the Bay Ltd. Volunteer Program.

Being a Bay Ltd. volunteer allows employees to collaborate with local officials, community and non-profit leaders, and organizations with missions to improve the quality of life in the community. The Bay Ltd. volunteer program aims to “Build Better Communities” by sharing their success through personal investments in neighbors and causes that make a positive and lasting impact.

Commitment to Quality

Bay recognizes the relationship between the quality of work, products, and the safety of personnel. In reviewing near-miss safety incidents, they invariably

6 Bay Ltd. |

discover areas for improvement in elements of work quality that can improve safety outcomes. For this reason, Bay has initiated a similar Beyond Zero emphasis in its Quality Program, as safety and quality in the industry are so closely linked. Their commitment to Quality: Through continual impact, Bay Ltd. is dedicated to furnishing its customers a highquality product with timely delivery in accordance with the contract at a competitive price. In order to ensure continuity in Quality across their Fabrication facilities, Bay has invested in ISO 9001 certification for their Fabrication Shops. Their clients are assured that the same work/quality processes are

followed no matter where their projects are fabricated.

Key Projects Showcase Bay’s Diversity and Ingenuity in Major Capital Project Delivery

Refinery and Petrochemical Process Unit Construction

Bay has been the overall Mechanical General Contractor on dozens of Refinery Unit additions to meet Low Sulfur requirements as well as changes to Crude Slates processed by their business partners. One such project involved the construction of a grassroots Low Sulfur Gasoline (LSG) unit for a Gulf Coast facility – the project

13 Bay Ltd. |

involved process equipment and pipe fabrication, all Equipment setting, structural steel, and piping interconnects for the unit. The project also involved the construction of new API storage tanks to store the resultant LSG. Several years later, with the implementation of the Tier 3 low sulfur requirements, their client tasked Bay with the fabrication, heavy haul, and erection (with one of their 1,000ton cranes) of the over 600ton CDHDS reactor, which was integrated with the LSG unit. Project peak craft manpower at over 650 folks and close to 1,000,000 manhours over the course of the projects.

Heavy Civil

Bay was contracted by a leading Petrochemical client to perform site preparation, site drainage, utility infrastructure, construction of all site roadways, material laydown areas, parking areas, and process area subgrade on an approximately 1,600-acre site which was a legacy cotton farm. Many of the Process

Unit components were built as mega-modules (10,000 tons), necessitating the construction of an over 5-mile Heavy Haul corridor from the Marine Quay site to the process areas, which was also part of Bay’s scope of work. The project involved mass earthmoving over
