Nucor – Air Seperation Unit

Project overview

In support of Nucor Steel’s 650 million dollar Gallatin facility expansion, Nucor made the investment to construct and operate a fully functioning Air Separation Unit.


Part of Nucor Steel’s $650 million expansion included the construction of a new Air Separation Unit. To date, Nucor had never utilized “in-house” air separation units before, as they’ve always purchased gas from an outside supplier. This was going to be a completely new experience for them, and with our years of experience working with air separator units along with our long term Nucor partnership, United Group delivered.


By utilizing our industry leading expertise and our many years of performing some of Nucor Steel’s most challenging projects, the leadership at United Group Services provided a proven team of professionals to work directly with Nucor, to not only deliver the project on time, but also to reduce waste and cut cost. One of our top priorities was to educate our client on proper constructability practices that could be utilized on additional planned projects.
