MEPCO Maidsville Loading Dock
McCrossin Foundations was responsible for caisson installation at a new dock facility to convert an existing coal loadout facility into a coal offloading facility, a conversion that would ultimately result in a reduction of air emissions. McCrossin, survey located, provided as-built locations from the baseline specifications, and drilled and installed 8 drilled shafts via rotary drilling by means of a rock auger and muck bucket as follows:
After the dock facility is installed, the new process will now involve: Clean coal will arrive at the site by barge. Coal will be removed from the barges with an offloader powered by an electric engine. The offloader will place the coal into a hopper B-1, which will transfer the coal to a series of two conveyor belts BC-1 and BC-2. The coal will be deposited by a radial stacker onto stockpile OS-1/NC. Coal from OS-1/NC is moved by dozer/endloaded to an underground reclaim belt BC-3. The coal from the reclaim belt is transferred to hopper B-2 and loaded to coal trucks.
