Work at World Energy – Paramount Petroleum is looking to get started with the new contract work by the end of this year. Newtron Electric is waiting for the AQMD permit so they can begin the demo and rebuild of much of the old Paramount Refinery.
Both Newtron Electric and California Spectra Electric have been awarded the first of many contracts for much of this very fine work inside what will be the new World Energy Refinery. The first contract will require both of our electrical contractors to hire IBEW Journeymen, Certified Instrumentation Technicians and IBEW Apprentices for this new contract. The RSO20 training card will be needed to take a call out to World Energy Refinery. Newtron Electric is looking to begin work at the World Energy facility and will be placing an initial call for approximately 50 inside wiremen and women. Newtron Electric will also be placing calls for apprentices. California Spectra Electric will also get started at this refinery in the early part of 2022 and will be placing a handful of calls for all classifications.
As the fourth quarter approaches, work in many other refineries will also be coming. Many of our other contractors working in the refineries are looking to acquire much-needed manpower in the winter months of 2021. So stay current with the RSO20 training card and keep your TWIC card current in order to take a call out to these refineries.
