Plant Stanton Combined Cycle Unit B Fuel Oil Conversion
Southern Company Services, Inc.
184,000 sq ft
This project consisted of the installation of the support foundations, underground electrical, and underground mechanical piping systems for a one-on-one combined cycle unit. The project was initially intended to be an integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plant; however, due to government and environmental restrictions, the plant was changed to burn natural gas. Along with the combined cycle, Brasfield & Gorrie also installed the fuel oil foundations, mechanical piping, and electrical duct banks.
The project included all of the site grading and road work as well as construction of the support buildings, including a large warehouse, an administration building, and an electrical equipment shelter. Brasfield & Gorrie self-performed all of the site work and concrete, including all of the electrical duct banks. Brasfield & Gorrie also installed all of the limestone roads to facilitate the above-ground plant construction traffic and the mobilization of the heavy haul contractor.
