Mooring Cell Repairs

Project Type

Project Description

In the summer of 2012, UCC was contracted to perform turnkey mooring cell repairs for a large fossil fuel plant on the Ohio River. A team of topside and underwater welder fabricators repaired 12 mooring cells that were 16’ in diameter. The repairs ranged from small patch work to installing new rolled plating around the entire mooring cell from top to bottom. After welding was completed, the cells were filled with stone to complete the repair.

UCC utilized a spud barge with an 80 ton crane and other vessel platforms to support this project. This enabled multiple crews working at separate cell locations to increase productivity. All welders were certified to the AWS D3.6 & D1.1 standards and completed this project safely under OSHA and the Association of Diving Contractors regulations.
