A bulk storage terminal facility at a major U.S. port needed additional storage capacity for coal. The existing yard was at capacity and the only space available for expansion was a brownfield former synthetic fuel plant site adjacent to the yard. Varo was retained to provide engineering and design services for the 100,000 ton storage

Dry Fly Ash Storage Site

Fly ash is a by-product of coal fired power generation and is considered to be environmentally hazardous. Historically, the ash has been pumped as a slurry to containment ponds for storage prior to being transported to landfills. In recent years there have been a number of failures of these ponds, resulting in severe environmental contamination
