The Beech Ridge project was built on a ridge-line throughout Mead Westvaco’s pulp timer property north of Rupert, West Virginia.  To construct the roads and foundations crews used dynamite to blast the 18,000 PSI sandstone and hauled over 1 million tons of material.

During construction the project received 21 feet of snow which required substantial road plowing and uncovering of turbine components before erection could begin.  Overall the project recorded 186,000 man hours and was completed without any loss-time safety incidents – quite notable considering the harsh conditions faced by the project team.
