Elevated Conveyor Tear Down & Replacement

GBI worked with Wolf Point Engineers & Contractors and Sargent & Lundy to tear-down and re-erect a new 2,100' elevated coal conveyor system at the Sooner Power plant for Oklahoma Gas & Electric.

Our project team's extensive experience and planning with heavy critical loads was instrumental to winning and completing the work successfully.  The GBI team ran multiple shifts and overcame several challenges including work over water and completing work during the spring 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.  It was a great job done with GBI safety and quality.  GBI scope included:
