FRIB Project Announcement
Shaw is pleased to announce that we have recently been awarded the electrical contract for the new “Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB)”.
Scheduled for completion in 2022, the FRIB will be a new national user facility for nuclear science. The project is being funded by the Department of Energy's Office of Science, Michigan State University (MSU) and the State of Michigan.
To be operated by MSU - home of the nation's No. 1-ranked graduate nuclear physics program - the centerpiece of the FRIB will be a superconducting linear accelerator that will dramatically increase the reach of rare isotope research in the United States. The accelerator will produce isotopes that normally exist only in the most extreme environments in the universe and will greatly expand the usefulness of isotopes in a broad range of applications from modeling stars to understanding the workings of nanoscale electronic devices.
Case Study: Detroit Metro Airport McNamara Terminal
Wayne County Airport Authority and the Transportation Security Administration hired Shaw Electric in March 2009 to help design and install a $72 million in-line explosives detection system for baggage handling at Detroit Metro Airport’s McNamara terminal.
“Adding this latest technology and employing innovative collaborative project management represent our commitment to the traveling public,” said federal Security Director Bob Ball.
