Description: As the refinery processes were being improved and thruput was going up, it became apparent tht the present steam plant was not large enough. In 1947 a new steam plant was built containng two Wicks boilers and two Foster-Wheeler Boilers. Thus the maximum steam capacity was ncreased to 85,000 lbs. per hour at 150 lbs. pressure.
