LOUISVILLE, Kentucky – Charah Solutions, Inc. was awarded a large-scale, multi-year ash marketing and landfill operations contract for utility companies owned by Entergy Corporation at three plants in Arkansas and Louisiana.
Entergy Corporation, an integrated energy company engaged primarily in electric power production and retail distribution operations, delivers electricity to 2.9 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
As part of this agreement, Charah Solutions will be responsible for marketing fly ash and bottom ash from Entergy Louisiana’s Nelson Power Plant in Westlake, Louisiana; Entergy Arkansas Independence Power Plant in Newark, Arkansas; and Entergy Arkansas White Bluff Power Plant in Redfield, Arkansas.
Over the next five years, the combined scope of work is anticipated to include over two million tons of fly and bottom ash sales for beneficial use, transported via truck and railcar to regional markets to supply the growing demand for concrete in the construction industry.
These coal combustion products (CCPs) will be distributed throughout Charah Solutions’ MultiSource materials network of more than 40 nationwide locations, with international sourcing and distribution. The MultiSource materials network is a unique distribution system which provides a continuous and reliable supply of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) for ready mix concrete producers and other customers.
In addition, Charah Solutions will be responsible for onsite landfill operations and disposal of over 900,000 tons of unsold coal combustion residuals (CCRs). The scope of work also includes activities involved in the landfill maintenance work such as erosion and sediment control, active landfill maintenance, landfill cover maintenance, record keeping, mowing, dust control and overall site maintenance.
“Charah Solutions is recognized in the power generation industry as a total solutions company. This is a great example of our unique ability to bundle our service offerings for utilities, providing both CCP and CCR solutions simultaneously,” said Scott Sewell, Charah Solutions president and CEO.
