Charah Solutions, a leading provider of environmental services and byproduct recycling to the power generation industry, today announced that it has been awarded two Remediation & Compliance Services contracts and one Byproduct Services contact from three different utility partners throughout the Southeast:
- Charah Solutions’ Ash Pond Management Services contract in Louisiana includes the dewatering, excavation and removal of approximately 400 000 t of coal combustion residuals (CCR) from two legacy ash basins and the delivery and disposal of the CCRs to the station’s existing onsite lined landfill.
- The Company’s long-term Landfill Operations contract in Arkansas for Byproduct Services includes CCR material loading, transportation, placement and compaction in an existing onsite lined landfill. Charah Solutions will manage and transport conditioned fly ash, bottom ash, spray dryer absorber (SDA) reactor ash and filter cake for a total of approximately 1.7 million t of CCR materials over the life of the contract.
- Charah Solutions’ Ash Pond Management Services contract in Arkansas includes the closure by removal of a retiring pond. This project involves the excavation of nearly 690 000 y3 of CCR from the ash and coal yard runoff pond plus the excavation of over 60 000 y3 of the underlying soil. Excavated and dredged materials will be placed in an onsite lined landfill while the excavated bottom ash segregated portions ultimately will be marketed and sold as a raw material to the Portland cement production industry.
“We are delighted to be awarded these multiple projects from three different utility partners to meet their specific remediation and compliance and byproduct service needs, ensuring a well-managed and compliant program from start to finish,” said Scott Sewell, Charah Solutions President & CEO. “Charah Solutions has decades of proven experience and expertise to handle every regulatory, engineering and technical issue related to CCR ash pond closure and landfill management, and we are committed to meeting the evolving and increasingly complex needs of our utility partners and supporting their sustainability initiatives.”
