Complex Wharf Construction Near Operating Facility

INSIDE THE PROJECT

This project included the construction of a coke wharf and tunnel, settling basin, quench tower, conveyors and equipment erection, screening plant upgrades and associated pipe and electrical upgrades by Kokosing Industrial and our affiliate company, McGraw Kokosing. All of these improvements were constructed to accommodate the 100 coke ovens built for Phase II of the Haverhill project. Deep structure construction took place adjacent to operating coke ovens within the operating 200-oven facility.

WHY IT MATTERS

One of the unique challenges of this project was working within the operating plant and coordinating construction with the plant’s operations staff to minimize disruption to operations. After a few months of operating Phase I and II, the decision was made to add a second wharf. The wharf needed to be constructed immediately and was designed adjacent to the trackwork and operating equipment. Once the ovens are heated, they are unable to be taken offline, so work had to proceed within the plant operations.

Additional Phase for More Coke Production

INSIDE THE PROJECT

Success in Phase I of Haverhill North Coke Facility earned Kokosing the opportunity to construct an additional 100 coke ovens at the Haverhill site, along with a 64-megawatt steam turbine generator.  Affiliate company, McGraw Kokosing participated in the construction effort as well.

WHY IT MATTERS

Kokosing’s ability to self-perform nearly all aspects of construction enabled successful completion of a facility that will be using best available pollution control technology to produce high-quality metallurgical coke used in steel production, and providing electricity for years to come.

High-End Coke Facilities Support Steel Industry

INSIDE THE PROJECT

Kokosing provided fast-track Design-Build construction of a new heat recovery coke plant and steam generation facility spanning across an 80-acre greenfield site. The project consisted of 100 coke ovens and five waste Heat Recovery Steam Generators. Additional project components included a flue gas desulphurization system, miles of railroad siding for coal receiving and coke shipping, material handling systems, a cooling tower, condenser and associated piping for supplying steam to a neighboring facility and a substation and associated transmission line. Kokosing Industrial self performed over 90 percent of the entire project peaking at 600 skilled craftsmen.

WHY IT MATTERS

In a world where the new demand for steel relies on the producing of processed coke – everyday counts.  Today, this client produces a high-grade metallurgical coke with an efficiency that continues to exceed all expectations.
