ECA Shawville Meter Station


ECA contracted TEK to design/supply/install(290) helical pile foundation supports for their Shawville Meter station as part of converting an existing NRG coal fired power plant to a Natural Gas fired plant. Supports are for piping, equipment and a pre-engineered canopy. Installation was completed in 2 months with one crew. Due to a small work area, the TEK crew could not get too far ahead with pile installation without blocking in the mechanical contractor. Sequencing and communication/ coordination on a daily basis with all other trades and ECA was essential to complete the project successfully and on time. There were a total of (16) different pile and pile cap configurations installed based upon loading specifications. Due to the potential of lateral loading on the pipe, some piles were incased in a concrete collar 2-3 ft. below grade.
