Barton Malow is playing an important role in DTE Energy’s major clean air effort. Current work includes installing two Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) Units at the Monroe plant to reduce sulfur dioxide and particulate emissions from the coal-fired plant. With a capacity of more than 3,000 megawatts, Monroe is DTE’s largest generating facility and the second-largest power plant in the Midwest.

A previous contract with DTE included the installation of two FGD Units as well as the infrastructure for the two current units. Barton Malow is self performing concrete and resteel for the project which includes placing over 65,000 yards of concrete and installing over eight million pounds of reinforcing steel.

Our “anchor bolts down” work for this project consists of: driving over 5, 500 H-Pile, concrete foundations, sumps, pits and trenches, site utilities, storm work, sanitary sewer , underground fire protection, embedded piping and drainage, electrical power ductbank and electrical grounding, pipe supports and pipe crossing bridges.

Above ground, Barton Malow is responsible for concrete foundation walls and supported slabs, equipment pads, elevated slabs, concrete paving, asphalt paving, fencing, guard posts and guardrail.

Barton Malow has a fully integrated partnership with DTE and its prime contractors, and the Monroe plant is a MIOSHA partnership site. Quality and safety improvements implemented by Barton Malow have resulted in 13 months of service with no lost time injures and no recordable safety incidents.
