Tennessee Valley Authority

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), a federal corporation, is the nation’s largest public power company. It operates fossil fuel, nuclear and hydropower plants. When the Cumberland facility needed to build new scrubbers and install a series of Induced Draft Fans (I.D. Fans) in its power plant, they contacted GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech for structural dynamic engineering services.

BHP Billiton

Slope stability is a major concern if the only thing between your mine and the Suriname River is an embankment of sand, especially if critical reserves require blasting in close proximity to the embankment. To keep the ore flowing out of the mine, GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech was brought in to establish vibration criteria and develop blast design recommendations to minimize the impact on the sand embankment.
