An inland construction project of a thermal power plant in the United States. For this project, a private cargo unloading dock was constructed on the Missouri River in the vicinity of the power plant, allowing for an increase in the unit size of the transported items. This played a big role in the success of the project, as we could restrict the amount of items that needed to be broken up into smaller parts, greatly reducing the transportation project time-frame, and leading to a significant reduction in the overall power plant construction costs.

The transportation project period was drastically shortened, thanks to the ability to transport cargos in large units. The initial construction costs of the temporary quay were more than offset by the overall cost-efficiency savings seen by the client.
As part of our feasibility study of this quay construction approach, careful consideration was given to checking the water levels and closing period of the Missouri River, as well as the procedure for acquiring a construction permit. We also maintained close contact with local governments and the US Army to seek licensing agreements, as well as environmental protection groups to seek advance approval for the project.
