Comanche Peak Power Plant

Location: Glen Rose, Texas
Client: Furgo Consultants, LP
Owner: TXU Power
Services: Drilling

Overview:
Geotechnology drill crews provided Fugro Consultants with contract drilling services in support of the geotechnical investigation for various additions to the existing nuclear power plant. Geotechnology’s crew drilled more than 75 coreholes to depths ranging from 50 to 325 feet using HQ coring equipment. Geotechnology consistently maintained a core recovery of greater than 95%, while other contractors working at the site averaged recoveries of 80% or less in the soft limestone, shale and sandy shales found at the site. More than 950 drilling hours were logged on the project with no OSHA-reportable injury recorded nor were any notices of deficiency related to safety or quality of work received.
