Amec Wins CCR Contract With KU-LG&E

Amec Foster Wheeler has started work on an engineering, procurement and construction contract for Louisville Gas and Electric Co. (LG&E) and Kentucky Utilities Co. (KU) for a coal ash or coal combustion residuals (CCR) treatment project in Trimble County, Kentucky.

The project will transition Trimble County Generating Station’s CCR processing from a wet system to a state-of-the-art closed-pipe dry conveyor system to convey bulk materials. Closed-pipe conveyors typically used for conveying bulk materials such as flyash and gypsum, as at this site, for long distances where space is an issue and steep inclines are necessary.
