This was the third plant to have Fly Ash modifications completed. The first two were self-performed by the general contractor and neither were profitable. Both had long shutdowns and required about 16,000 man hours to complete.


We completed this job quicker and more efficiently than before. We had major completion of the project 2 weeks early with 50% less labor than the first two plants. There was a 25-day shutdown and this project was profitable. We stored all new equipment at our yard and established “just in time” deliveries to site which relieved site congestion and multiple handling. We removed all demolished structures and equipment from site in the largest possible pieces to our yard which also relieved site congestion. This was all completed without an incident.


We found your team of craftsmen to be extremely professional, safety conscious, highly skilled, easy to get along with, dedicated to doing the job right the first time, very efficient in their work, and extremely hard working.
