Wheatfield, IN
NIPSCO Flue Gas Desulphurization Project

Walters provided structural steel to the Babcock & Wilcox Construction company, who were carrying out a $75-million refurbishment of the Northern Indiana Public Service Company’s R.M. Schahfer Generating Station. The generating station supplies power to the people of Wheatfield, Indiana.

Our Role

Walters completed all the detailing and fabrication of structural and non-structural steel. We also handled all logistics for delivery to Indiana and performed the installation on site.

Facts & Figures

  • 2,400 tons of steel distributed across multiple structures

Overcoming Challenges

Despite logistical challenges, including coordinating with other trades on the installation of mechanical platforms, this project was fast-tracked, finishing two months ahead of schedule. The client had requested that erection, which began in February 2013, be completed by December of the same year. We topped off the project in September, reducing the erection schedule from nine months to seven.
