Trip to See E-Crane at Lowman Power Plant
We visit PowerSouth Energy, located in LeRoy, Alabama to see an E-Crane in action. The plant operates three generating units generating a capacity of 556 megawatts. Enough to power approximately 556,000 homes. Coal, transported either by barge from the Tombigbee River or by rail, is the primary source of fuel.
When PowerSouth Energy Cooperative upgraded its plant, E-Crane offered a turnkey solution. E-crane solved the material unloading and river level problems. It did so by providing floating terminal of two barges, a hopper, a arge haul system, and a barge-breasting system.
