Saluda Dam in South Carolina

MARCO designed, engineered and fabricated the complete material transferring and delivery system for Barnard Construction on the Saluda Dam Project in South Carolina.

The system delivers 1600 TPH (590 cu. m/ hr) of Roller Compacted Concrete for the construction of the Saluda Dam.  The plant includes an overland delivery system with a tripper conveyor system, long span “linking”  conveyors & a crawler placer.   MARCO also supplied cooling belts  to meet the temperature specifications of the concrete during transfer.

The plant had a capital value of $2,000,000+ and took 6 months to design and manufacture.  Ultimately the construction site utilized over 3900 feet of MARCO Tubular Truss to complete the project.
