The Robert W Scherer Power Plant

Posted on Posted in Power

The Robert W Scherer Power Plant (also known as Plant Scherer) is a coal-fired power plant in Juliette, Georgia, just north of Macon, Georgia, in the United States. The plant has four units, each producing 880 megawatts. On this project the company installed a total of 1,432 micropiles (61,000 linear feet). MK used a sophisticated testing methodology to maximize the frictional bearing capacity of the rock strata, thus resulting in shorter micropiles, which saved the owner in excess of $5M and reduced the overall construction schedule.
