Design Build Material Handling Improvements

Kokosing Industrial provided necessary upgrades to an existing coal-fired power station for our power generation client.

INSIDE THE PROJECT

This Design-Build project was constructed for the limestone and gypsum material handling systems to support a new flue gas desulfurization (FGD) scrubber system. Kokosing self-performed construction of the concrete foundations, underground utilities, electrical, plant roads and the pre-engineered metal building.  Throughout the years, Kokosing has performed numerous projects at this facility including waste pond treatment facilities, roadway paving, drainage work, haul road construction for the FGD landfill and truck washes.

WHY IT MATTERS

When the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency initiated the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) and Clean Air Mercury Rule (CAMR), it mandated the installation of environmental control equipment on coal plants to meet air regulations.   Our client invested in advanced equipment to improve the environmental performance of its coal fired facilities. The FGD project extended the life of the Muskingum River plant and other coal plants in our region.  Today, many coal plants in our region are closing and being replaced with other power generation sources.

Kokosing has completed numerous projects for us. We were pleased with the performance that Kokosing demonstrated on the project in terms of safety, efficiency and working with other contractors who were also completing their work at the same time.
