Valmont Power Plant

Scope of Work: Site Development, Asbestos Abatement.

EDI removed contaminated fly ash, asbestos insulation and re-insulated Unit #5 boiler walls, penthouse & attic plenum. This unique project faced many tough challenges. The containment was constructed 165 feet in the air, utilizing a temporary elevator, on scaffolding and narrow catwalks. The Valmont Power Generating Facility was shut down while EDI completed this strict 4 week project. EDI employees worked 24 hour days, 7 days a week, battling extreme conditions, 100+ mph winds, with initial temperatures inside the enclosure of 162 degrees and extreme heights.

“Thank you for your excellent responsiveness and quality of work on our two recent projects.”
