Ameren Labadie Fly Ash Facility
Design/Build Detective Work
Ameren turned to PayneCrest’s design/build skills to develop a reliable solution to treat and dispose of Labadie Power Plant fly ash to meet new EPA standards. PayneCrest leveraged its vast experience with power facilities to create new silo storage facilities with highly complex process controls to treat fly ash for transport to alternate EPA-approved disposal sites. The project entailed considerable detective work to identify and modify the more than 40-year-old infrastructure, much of it unknown, and integrate it with 21st century electrical infrastructure. The project was named a finalist in the 2019 AGC Keystone Awards.
