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.
