Ghent Coal Combustion Residuals Transport Project
Kiewit subsidiary, TIC, designed and installed the Ghent Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Transport Project. The facility conditions, dewaters and transports CCR from the four coal-fired boilers to a remote landfill storage.
Work included the installation of a pneumatic system for conveying fly ash, including fly ash storage silos, a gypsum dewatering facility and a bottom ash dewatering facility. The project also incorporated a 1.8-mile overland pipe conveyor for transporting the dewatered CCR to a landfill.
At the time of completion, the 2,000-megawatt facility was one of the most environmentally sound and technologically advanced coal plants in the country.
