The work includes value engineering, foundations construction, steel fabrication and erection, and the mechanical and electrical installation. West Virginia Electric, also a Victory of West Virginia Co., has been selected as the electrical sub-contractor. The project will take 20 months to complete and work is scheduled to begin soon.
Mountaineer Resources and West Virginia Electric are also providing the design and construction for the new rail loadout at CONSOL Energy’s Bailey Mine. Safety is an important value for Mountaineer Resources and CONSOL Energy, and the companies will follow strict safety plans on these projects with the goal of zero incidents.
