In 2020, Williams Construction Co. had the opportunity of teaming up again with Richmond Engineering Works (based out of Pittsburgh, PA) on this rotary coal dumper replacement at a facility in North-Central Oklahoma. This 16-week project consisted of constructing the new rotary dumper, removal of the old dumper from the building, and the installation of the new rotary dumper in its place. The new rotary dumper weighs approx. 320,000 lbs. and required a comprehensive and detailed lifting plan, along with exceptional organization and coordination with all parties involved to achieve a safe and successful installation.
This marks the 7th rotary coal dumper replacement to-date for the Williams Construction team. Our team enjoyed the chance to work close to home, and for an owner that we have worked with on past projects.
