Project Overview

In 2008 Trans Ash was selected to start a new mine reclamation operation in Southern Indiana. Throughout the life of the project, Trans Ash has offered innovative approaches to maximizing the storage potential of the mine while reducing costs. After 10 years the partnership between the facility and Trans Ash is ongoing as the mine reclamation approaches its completion in the early 2020’s

“We are proud to have developed a long-term relationship with Trans Ash. They have adapted to the ever changing scope of work, worked cooperatively with us, and offered us the best possible value.”

Project Challenges & Solutions

The primary challenge of this project is adapting to changing conditions throughout the long duration of the project while continuing to provide the best value to the facility:

  • The output of the facility is highly variable from year to year. Trans Ash has modified its equipment and manages manpower to accommodate the large fluctuations while keeping costs down.
  • The mine reclamation development changes from year to year. Trans Ash developed a long-term strategy to be sure the facility has ample storage for CCRs while maintaining a limited, open footprint.
  • The design of the mine reclamation allows for operational modifications. The final contours of the fill, as well as work around an existing high wall, has been optimized by Trans Ash for safety and to maximize the storage volume.
  • The haul road crosses an adjacent mine and public county road. These two interactions create the potential for safety concerns. Trans Ash has instituted controls including MIOSHA trained employees, and traffic patterns to maintain a safe work site for our employees, the public and customer's personnel.
