MSU T.B. Simon Power Plant – Coal Handling Facility Upgrade

Lansing, Michigan – 45 Tons

This entire project was time driven. Shutdown of the facility was to occur in November and all work including equipment installation was to be completed before January 1st.  Early involvement with the MSU construction team enabled Douglas Steel Fabricating Corporation to offer alternative framing solutions to the EOR that helped to reduce costs and field time.

Our scope included not only detailing, fabricating and erecting the structural steel but also installing the entire conveyor system and other supporting equipment.  Douglas designed, fabricated and installed supplemental framing including many hoisting systems for maintenance.

Douglas also addressed the substantial lead paint in the existing structure. We contracted to have the lead paint abated in all areas requiring reinforcing and areas where equipment was to be attached.
