Hunter Power Plant - Utah
Situated in South Central Utah is Hunter Power Plant, a coal driven power plant that generates electricity for thousands of PacificCorp customers. In order for the Hunter Power Plant to effectively continue generating such power upgrades to a larger blower fan were necessary. The replacement of such fans required for A-Core teams to cut two massive pieces of the concrete foundation. A-Core used specially designed wire saws to saw off the two 12-feet wide by 17-feet thick pieces of concrete.
The project was required to be completed during a plant shutdown. Therefore, two specialized crews worked around the clock, 24/7. A back up saw was mobilized in the case of an unexpected break down or emergency. To the contractor’s astonishment, the entire project was completed in just seven days, which was two days ahead of schedule.
