TIC – The Industrial Company provides direct-hire construction services to traditional industrial markets across the United States. The same mission the original company had when it began more than 35 years ago. Those markets include power, mining/minerals, oil, gas and chemical, renewable energy, general services and maintenance, substation installations/high voltage testing for the chemical, power and refinery industries and marine/heavy civil and fabrication. TIC provides specialized services through its T. E. Ibberson Company district, whose experience expands over 130 years, specializing in design/build slip form installations and grain handling systems throughout the world.
KCP&L and Westar Energy selected the team of TIC-The Industrial Company, Kiewit and Sargent & Lundy LLC to engineer, procure and construct the retrofit to the 1500 MW plant. The La Cygne Generating Station Environmental Retrofit Project includes the installation of two Hitachi wet FGD scrubbers and new fabric filters on Unit 1 and Unit 2; and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, low-NOx burners and over-fire air system on Unit 2 of the facility.
TIC was the general contractor for the installation of 10 miles of conveyor system including all associated concrete, structural, mechanical and E&I. TIC installed overland conveyor on 18% and 16% grades. This required careful precautions and best practices to keep the work safe.
TIC was awarded the contract for engineering, construction and procurement JV with Roberts & Schaefer. Scope of work consisted of surface expansion that included a new 2,000 TPH facility comprised of storage, screening, crushing, sampling and automated truck loading.
