Freedom Upgrade Project Monthly Construction Update for November 2022:

  • Demolition preparation for the legacy plants.
  • Commissioning of the two units on the west side of the new compressor building.

November 2022 Work Plan

  • Testing and commissioning runs on three compressors has completed.   The first stage of the project is complete and will continue to be operated 24-hours per day depending on gas system needs.  The project may be venting gas to perform maintenance on the units if necessary as part of planned work.
  • The testing and commissioning of the last two units is in the final stages.  The safety systems have been tested and the final two compressor units were started in August.  For the next month they’ll operate to demonstrate reliability.  Once the units have demonstrated that they can operate reliably they’ll be turned over to the station for full-time operation.    
  • The work to disconnect the legacy plants 1 & 2 from the gas transmission system is complete.  Residents will continue to see a crew backfilling the excavations on the northside of the station.
  • The power to Plants 1 & 2 is expected to be disconnected in November.  Residents may see a DTE crew and electricians in the northeast corner of the station to perform the disconnection.
  • Preparation activities for the demolition work will continue in November this includes evacuating residual gas from the abandoned piping and removing equipment and furniture from the buildings.   

November 2022 Work Schedule

  • The project will work a Monday – Friday, 7:00AM – 5:30PM schedule.  Saturday work is not planned.

Wolverine Pipeline - Fall 2021 Newsletter

Our Commitment to a Safe Working Environment
Thanks to the relentless efforts of healthcare workers, emergency responders, and other COVID-19 heroes, many states are recommending businesses return to full capacity in the workplace. Wolverine Pipe Line Company falls into this category and is currently implementing its return to work plan while following CDC and MIOSHA guidelines. With safety as our top priority and core value as a company, we are keeping the following protocols in place in order to achieve the safest possible outcome:
  • Pre-Screen: Measure employee temperature and assess symptoms prior to start of work
  • Regular Monitoring: Employees complete “Are You Sick?” questionnaires upon arriving to work, self-monitor for symptoms, and report concerns to supervisors
  • Wear a Mask: Employees wear face masks when unable to maintain a proper social distance of six (6) feet outdoors and in enclosed spaces
  • Social Distance: Employees maintain six (6) feet and practice social distancing as work duties permit in the workplace
  • Disinfect and Clean Workspaces: Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting in all common areas
For the past year, we have been doing our part to reduce the spread of the virus. With a vaccine that is becoming more readily available, we are all confident that steps can be further taken to protect ourselves, our families, and our neighbors.
