Project Overview

Project: Construct New Boiler Plant for Soo Locks

Owner: US Army Corps of Engineers

Location: Sault Sainte Marie, MI

Project Type: Government

Role: Prime Contractor

Description: Greenland was selected to replace the boiler system in the steam plant building at the Soo Locks in Sault Sainte Marie, MI. The design-bid-build project included the demolition and removal of an existing boiler system and related mechanical equipment and the installation of three natural-gas package boilers that each provide 5M BTUs per hour. Greenland also constructed a utility tunnel and trench to connect the steam plant building with the Poe Lock gallery and perform other necessary building improvements.

The project was particularly challenging given the location between the Poe and Davis locks and the requirement to access the site via water for delivery and removal of the construction equipment and boilers.
