Ballard mobilized personnel and fabricated site-specific specialty equipment to perform sediment removal operations at two spray ponds within the plant. A five man dive/dredge crew performed work scope that included: training, badging, site set up, installation of diving systems, installation of twin 6″ dredging systems, daily production tracking, QA / QC reporting, pre and post dredge surveys and demobilization. One primary task was setting up the dredge spoils area including installing geotubes to capture the sediment. Ballard installed 6″ dewatering pumps in a sump that the geotubes drained into, to recover water and move it to the cooling tower wet wells.
All work performed on time and safely – zero accidents or lost time events.
