With a shipping schedule well beyond 1,000 miles, the Tindall Utility Division has fabricated precast hatch plugs for the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in Arizona, the largest power plant of its kind in the U.S. Carolina Energy Solutions sourced the concrete products on the strength of elite safety and production standards indicated in Tindall Utility’s Nuclear Quality Assurance Level One (NQA-1) program. The hatch plugs will serve as a critical enclosure, protecting workers and the surrounding community from power plant functions.

“The only way a project of this caliber can be successful is through the commitment of a team at all levels,” says Tindall Customer Service Manager Jason Traxler. “[Our] Utility Division is that team.”

“As a Nuclear Safety-Related Precast Concrete project, it was a challenge to meet all the requirements, but Tindall was up to the task,” adds Carolina Energy Principal Mechanical Engineer Tim Gunnels, characterizing the team as “very professional, responsive, and thorough throughout the process. We were able to successfully deliver the final product while meeting all of the end customer’s expectations.”
