Power Plant Intake Underwater Structure Repair

Project Type

Project Description

UCC performed an inspection on the raw water intake structures of a power generation facility. Findings revealed that 75% of the structure cap and support members underneath the cap had collapsed over the winter. While final repair drawings were being developed UCC performed emergent repairs starting with the removal of damaged areas.

Six underwater welders certified to AWS D3.6 and D1.1 were required for the project along with two certified level II underwater welding QC personnel. UCC’s welding and QC programs were reviewed, accepted and used by the customer. The intake structure was made fully operational.
