American Electric Power Cell Repair
Location: Brilliant, OH
Owner: Cardinal Operating Company
General Contractor: Brayman Construction Corp.
Date Complete: February 2012
This project consisted of steel repairs, both above and below water, to an existing mooring cell at American Electric Power’s Cardinal, OH coal offloading site.
Fabricated steel repair components were welded to seal a breach in the cell. Close coordination was required between the barge and dive crews to position the repair component in place. The cell was then re-filled with two-inch stone aggregate. After completion of the repairs, dredging was performed around the mooring cell to provide sufficient water depth for the coal laden barges.
