Plant Bowen Coal Unloading Railroad Trestle Replacement

Brasfield & Gorrie faced many challenges during the railroad trestle replacement at Plant Bowen. Due to an accelerated rail shutdown schedule, 18 new steel spans were fabricated in sections and preassembled onsite. Two cranes were required, but extensive preparations were needed before the cranes could be moved onto the site. Because of the accelerated schedule, the demolition, removal, and replacement of all spans took place over just 11 days.
