Marine Solutions was chosen by AEP Hydro Division as the marine contractor for the structural intake repairs to the Byllesby Hydroelectric Dam on the New River in Ivanhoe, VA. The project consisted of lowering and sealing the four head gates, removing sediment and debris from inside and outside of the units, removal of trash rack screens, and removal and replacement of damaged structural steel members. While onsite the crews completed many other tasks including trash rake removal and replacement, tainter gate repairs, staff gauge replacement, actuator pedestal repairs, waste gate replacement and pit drain clean out and repairs. Marine Solutions supplied all equipment and materials, including a floating platform with crane, and a six person dive crew to complete the project. Prior to completion of the project, Marine Solutions was awarded a similar contract for additional work at Buck Hydro just downstream of the Byllesby project.
