The Duke Energy Water Redirect Project includes equipment and facility updates that will bring Duke Energy into compliance with federal Coal Combustion Residuals and Effluent Limitations Guidelines (CCR/ELG). Operating under a tight schedule that includes outage work, Bowen will execute the installation of equipment and piping to redirect wastewater and storm water from the existing ash pond to the new retention basin.

Project Challenges:

  • Interfacing with the other contractor trying to execute the retention basin portion of the overall package. Bowen will encourage Duke to have an integrated schedule and tight coordination to mitigate potential issues.
  • Executing 19 different tie-ins to various systems in the Duke facility. Proper coordination and scheduling will ensure success of these tie-ins.
  • Project will span several miles in all corners of the Duke property. Bowen will maintain proper communication to keep the work on schedule.

Bowen Resourceful:

  • Bowen plans to coordinate schedule with the electrical subcontractor that will shorten the overall end date of the schedule by at least 10 days.

Bowen Responsive:

  • Bowen will be coordinating with numerous contractors onsite while the plant is under an outage.

Bowen Results:

  • Bowen’s goals are to have zero incidents as well as zero faulty fusions while installing the 35,000 LF of HDPE pipe.
