Florida Power Plant


Product:         Geotube® Dewatering Technology

Application:   Power & Utility

Location:       Tampa, Florida


The Challenge:

The local electric power plant needed to quickly and efficiently clean out their coal ash lagoon while dealing with limited dewatering space.

The Solution:

Taking advantage of available space, Geotube® dewatering units were deployed in the plant's parking lot.  This allowed for the capture of coal fly ash, boiler ash, and slag.  The Geotube® system processed 7,500 cubic yards of materials without any polymer treatment. 

The Results:

The filtrate quality remained high while solids were contained.  The materials dewatered between 75% to 85% dry solids.
