Hayward Baker has provided turn key design-build solutions for existing and new facilities at both traditional/conventional and renewable generating stations.
The engineering solutions to solve geotechnical problems in these environments are very different. The solutions range from open headroom open access deep foundations or ground improvement to working in very tight access conditions, and safety precautions that come from working within the fence of a Nuclear or Fossil Powered Generating station.
A byproduct of coal-fired power plants, known as coal combustion residuals (CCRs) or coal ash, is typically contained in large on-site landfills or large ponds called surface impoundments. Hayward Baker offers solutions to help ensure structural stability or increase the capacity of impoundments and contain contaminants.
In the past few years, more clean energy plants are being designed and installed. We are familiar with clean energy generation as well. We have worked on solar facilities, wind farms , and hydroelectric facilities. Regardless of the type of facility, our crews and project managers have experience in similar facilities across North America.
