Trans Ash assumed the routine handling operation in January 2013. At that time, the facility was spread over four working areas, separated by several miles of private and public roads. After closure of the remote landfill site, the project scope now encompasses two working areas separated by a private plant owned road. In 2018 limestone barge unloading and stack maintenance was added to the work scope. In 2019, the base contract was extended for another 5-year term demonstrating the client’s satisfaction with Tran Ash’s job performance.
By keeping our costs down and providing a high level of service we have been able to develop a great partnership with the customer and retain the work at this facility through a competitive bid event.”
Project Challenges & Solutions
The primary challenge for this project is the variable annual CCR production. Typical production ranges are from 750,000 to 1.5M tons annually. To meet this challenge Trans Ash has:
- Utilized a mixed fleet (on and off-road) of Trans Ash owned trucks. This allows us to meet the variable daily demands.
- Scheduled other onsite work, like landfill capping or sediment pond clean outs, in slow periods to maintain a more even workload.
- Made our work crews more efficient and productive by assuming additional work scope like mowing and barge unloading. This provides the customer with a consistent, safe and competent work force and helps reduce costs
