Shippingport, PA
First Energy Bruce Mansfield Selective Catalytic Reduction Project

Installed Selective Catalytic Reduction Scrubbers at the Bruce Mansfield coal-fired power plants in Shippingport, Pennsylvania in partnership with the First Energy Corporation and Babcock and Wilcox Construction.

Our Role

Walters supplied and installed structural and non-structural steel for the power generation plant which was already in operation.

Facts & Figures

  • 3,400 tons of steel to support three selective catalytic reduction units.
  • Three Selective Catalytic Reduction units were installed. (SCR technology facilitates the environmentally responsible production electricity.)

Overcoming Challenges

We had to install structural steel on top of an existing power plant. Ground-based Crane access was only available at one end of the plant. We constructed a rail runway along the length of the roof of the existing plant, and ran powered carts along these rails.
