Over the past 30 years, Geiger Brothers employees have completed a number of various projects for the operating and construction contractors at the U. S. Department of Energy’s gaseous diffusion uranium enrichment plant in Pike County, Ohio.
Under contract to Fluor, Geiger Brothers had mobilized for a long-term commitment to USEC, Inc., and the American Centrifuge Plant (ACP). Areas of work completed or started included Feed & Withdrawal roof drain repairs, cooling tower pump house equipment refurbishment, static test stand assemblies, diesel generator refurbishment, boiler building stack installation, process ductwork, and HVAC in the boiler and R/A buildings. For the ACP in its fabrication shop, Geiger Brothers had undertaken pipe hanger and support structure fabrication, the service module cart, and process building safety upgrade structures (stairs & railings). Geiger Brothers stands ready to resume work on this project.
