Palisades Nuclear Plant Pile Driving
Gerace was contracted to extend the existing vehicle barrier 130' into Lake Michigan. The vehicle barrier consisted of HP14x 117 pile drove 25' into the lake bed, extending 5' above the current lake level. This work was accomplished by utilizing sectional barges to create a causeway for our crane to achieve access to the work area. We utilized a 90 ton Kobelco Crawler and H&M 150 Vibro with diesel power pack to accomplish the work.
