Resisting the Tides

National Grid

Project Overview

Water is essential to the operation of power plants, but it’s also corrosive to a facility’s infrastructure, especially where it meets a body of water.

When National Grid faced a failing bulkhead at its Glenwood Landing facility, they awarded MVN with the job of setting it right without interrupting their around-the-clock operations.

We installed 600 linear feet of sheet pile bulkhead within 18 inches of the failing structure. Our custom-designed solution included a grouted tieback anchor system that worked seamlessly with the existing structure, and custom enclosures to eliminate washout.
